1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan

Review

At 135,000 miles developed heat gasket problem and lost the transmission! The cost of repairing the two is more than the value of the vehicle. I'm disppointed. This happened one month after finally paying of the vehicle. I was hoping I'd see another year, at least, before having to worry about serious problems. Now, I've got a real nice "looking" van that isn't worth $300! Rack-and-pinion steering has been bad also; quoted $800+ to repair the steering!

Favorite Features

Chose the Windstar because of it's high safety rating. Was comfortable, but would not classify it as a high level of craftsmanship.

Suggested Improvements

Transmissions, head gaskets and rack- and-pinion steering! (And interior lights! Lot of problems where the dome lights refused to go out!
