Review

It has been very faithful. Very nice
interior with leather seats,etc. Great
for family camping trips, holds
everything. Exterior is showing its
age. Recently put in $2500 for head
gasket.

Interior leather seats and dash.

Review

I purchased a 95 Windstar 1 yr old
with 15K mi. At first it ran well,
great comfort and ride. Then came head
gasket failure, resulting in engine
rebuild. Ford recalled engines, a year
after $4000 bill. Also replaced brake
system (2x), trans, speedo head (3x @
$350 a pop). The door ajar chime
always turned on/off at random.
Towards the end cruise control and FI
system failed. I got 140K miles out of
this beast, but at WAY too high a cost
of ownership. Just donated it to
charity since repair estimates were
greater than value. To anyone
considering Windstars (any year but
especially '95), be smart and look
elsewhere -- no matter what the price!


Best Features

Great interior comfort; exceptionally smooth ride; good power from 3.8L V6


Worst Features

Windstar has been replaced by Freestar, but anyone considering a Freestar should be warned of Windstar legacy!

Review

I have owned my Windstar for about six
years. It has proved to be a very
good vehicle. Its ride is very
comfortable and it is very quiet
inside. It has most all the options I
need and want and is very versitile.
It has great cargo room when seats are
removed. I have automatic lights and
mirror which I appreciate and the
electronic dash has all the
information I want. I have driven
many newer vans and still have not
found one the equal of mine.


Best Features

The electronic dash. The comfortable arm rests of cloth and the door trim which is cloth. Good visibility. Automatic lights and dimming mirror.


Worst Features

Could use a little more power in the engine. I would like an electric compass and backup warning sensors.

Review

Problems: head gasket; door chimes (all
the time); wipers work sometimes; check
engine half the time; seat belts broke
in back; HUGE cruise off button was
easy to accidentally hit; this was the
first vehicle ever that I had to look
at the radio to do anything with it.
Volume, on/off, presets, every button
was the same size and feel. F.O.R.D:
Full Of Retarded Design.


Best Features

The check engine light never needed to be replaced. Everything else did. Towed ok w/ tranny cooler. Comfy ride when it ran.


Worst Features

Replace interior w/ Honda design. Replace exterior w/ Honda design. Put a Honda emblem on the hood. Then I'll buy the Windstar again.

Review

I bought this car used one year old
with 20,000 miles. It ran fine for the
first two years. Then after that the
car started costing. First the A/C
compressor broke causing the entire
A/C system to fail. That cost me
$3,000 dollars. Then the transmition,
that cost me another $2,500.Rack on
pinion and power steering-$900. Head
Gasket-$800. Water pump-$300. Power
steering again-$250. axels, cb
joint, etc. This list could
go on forever. This vehical has cost
me over $11,500 in repairs in a 5 year
period.


Best Features

Rear A/C and radio controls. Rear door unlock button.


Worst Features

I think this whole cars powertrian, and mechanical parts should be completely redone.
