1995 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


Went the head gasket blew my Windstar
was less than five years old, but at
miles (501 more than the max. for
factory paid repair.) Even after the
efforts of the local Ford dealership
to request that Ford pay to repair my
head gasket, Ford refused ($1,000 down
the hole). Now my transmission is
going and the rebuild isn't a lot less
than the trade in value. I am not even
going into the poor gas mileage.

Ford should have made recalls on the
headgasket and the transmission. If
Honda can produce vehicles that go
200,000 miles and more without
significant problems, then we should
be able expect as much from Ford.

Best Features

The interior design is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. It has been a nice vehicle for long trips. The premium stereo system is impressive. Overall a nice, solid body and well designed interior with a rotten engine and transmission.

Worst Features

Build a van and design the power plant and transmission for it -- don't rip them out of a car and expect them to perform or endure well!
