1995 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan (1995.5)


This is a totally unreliable, poorly built junk mobile and money pit. Ford built the engine out of two different metals that wear at different rates. As a result, it blows head gaskets every couple of years. They did not oficially recall it, but they had a "campaign" where they would repair it at no cost if you happened to bring it to a Ford Dealership. The first time the head gasket blue, it had my family stranded in a bad part of Los Angeles, about 600 miles from home. We had to tow it back and get a rental car to continue on. Since then, we've known its unreliable and haven't risked taking it very far.

Best Features

Its comfortable. But, its had 4 blown headgaskets, broken all engine mounts numerous times, cupholders broke, windows have all broken, air conditioning gone out, had problems with the fuel tank, door ajar went off constantly and had to be fixd, and this car has been towed more times than I can count

Worst Features

The cassette player was about the only thing that never broke. It lived for 148,00 miles but at a high costs of ownership; it was donated to charity since the repair costs outwighed its value (4th blown headgasket and 3k repair. Build something that isn't junk. I will NEVER buy another Ford product
