1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
Review
Dependable, powerful, economical but annoying. Windshield wiper pockets collect ice and make wipers useless in the snow. Door sensors don't work in cold or wet weather and keeps dome lights on so you can't see for the glare, and it runs battery down. Has had loud but unidentified engine compartment rattle for 80,000 miles. Brake problems. So-so seat comfort. The Windstar has the highest load capacity in its class but needs it just to carry around the removable seats. Don't try to remove them by yourself unless you want a hernia.
Favorite Features
Excellent power with 3.8 engine. No major mechanical problems. Excellent load capacity. Good fuel economy for a vehicle this large and powerful.
Suggested Improvements
Redesign or elimination of wiper pockets to keep out ice and snow, lighter removable seats, eliminate useless door sensors. Ford should have tested the little things in a cold climate before putting the Windstar into production.
