1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


We purchased this vehicle because of its safety crash rating. The way it has been going with this vehicle, we may find out how crash worthy it is sooner than we hope. We have only owned it since January of 2001 and it only had 18,000 miles on it. It now only has 32,000 miles. We have had to replace 2 ABS censors which were thankfully under warranty. Now, we have no brakes! You push the pedal to the floor and hope you will stop. We have been given an estimate of $400-$1000 for repairs. As soon as this vehicle is repaired we are dumping it. No more American cars for our family. Our last one was a Dodge Grand Caravan and the transmission went outon it at 60,000 miles.

Best Features

Attractive vehicle.

Worst Features

It is amazing that Ford is producing vehicles which they know have serious flaws. This vehicle is known for headgasket failure, brakes problems, air conditioning failure and transmission troubles.
