1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan

Review

I bought this car when we lived overseas in Germany and we needed up upgrade from a sedan. It has been an almost constant source of disappointment. We've had to replace the transmission sensor, rework the brakes twice (in one year), and countless other things. Who makes pistons out of plastic?! I'm not a heavy braker, so I'm not sure what the problem is. I also dislike the fact that the van will routinely stall. That makes me feel very unsafe. The mechanic at the dealer could find no cause for this problem. I'm looking for a vehicle to replace this piece of garbage!

Best Features

Comfortable ride, good winter vehicle (when everything is funcitoning well)

Worst Features

Make pistons out of a material that will stand up to the heat of braking - not plastic! A more reliable engine/transmission.
