We still like our Windstar

1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
Review
1998 3.8 Windstar - 5 years and 117K miles so far. Oil changed every 5K and the complete evac of trans fluid every 25-30K. New parts: master cylinder and brake booster at 115K (don't know if they were bad but the brakes were still spongy after new pads and shoes and bleeding did not help), four air filters, one fuel filter, one battery, two power steering pumps, three serpentine belts and one tensioner and two radiator flushes. Overall, the van has been excellent. It's powerful, smooth, and roomy. It's great on long trips. I've read a bunch of horror stories about the Windstar, but so far, it's the best car/van out of 20 I've owned.
Favorite Features
Engine power and smoothness. Roomy interior. Trouble-free dual air conditioner. The tires (Uniroyal Tiger Paw Nail Guard) wear perfectly without cupping, feathering,etc. The van has never left us stranded.
Suggested Improvements
The front seats have cheap foam/ springs. The power steering pump quit twice. Taurus power steering pump? The lug nut wheel covers on the aluminum wheels are easily damaged when tires are replaced. The remote entry to the driver's door has been working slowly.
