We bought our 1998 Windstar GL in early
1999 after being returned from a 1 year
lease. I was impressed with the power,
roominess, and gas mileage this minivan
delivered (about 20-23 mpg). We had a
couple of early service issues
(replaced front "ball joints" and an
early oxygen sensor failure), but
otherwise the vehicle perfomed very
well. We were sorry to lose this
vehicle in a rear end collision, but
are impressed enough with this Ford to
consider replacing this with another
Ford. This time with something smaller
and with better gas mileage, with the
recent sustained hike in gas prices.
Roominess, gas mileage for size and
power of vehicle, ride comfort.
