whoops, did I buy that?
By not so lucky on


1995 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan


We bought the van with about 70000
miles. It was clean and looked pretty
well taken care of. We were looking
forward to Ford's big step at making a
solid, well build, and safe van. It
might be safe in crash tests, but not
so safe if you are stranded.
Our head gasket went out. Our entire
transmission has been replaced twice by
reputable companies. The cd player
doesn't engage correctly half of the
time, replaced many sensors, and brakes
and tie rods by 115,000.
Other than reliability, it is very
comfortable and a likeable vehicle. I
won't be buying another one soon.

Best Features

Lots of interior room. Not many squeeks. Looks ok. Comfortable. Fairly quiet on the road.

Worst Features

Get a dependable drive train and electronics. Transmission went out twice on trips in the summer. Why do I here about sensors and electronics going out so much less in Japanese products than Ford and GM?
