Vehicle1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
ReviewRepeatedly in dealership for "Check
Engine" light. Meticulously well
maintained car blew head gasket at 88K
miles. Ford resonse: "Sorry, 1995
3.8L Windstars are covered for head
gasket problem..." However Ford
maintains they "corrected it in '96 and
later models..." so too bad if you are
having trouble. Local mechanic says
3.8L head gasket woes are a Ford trait,
not unique to Windstar, but all 3.8-
powered Fords with 60-90K miles. Also
clunky transmission makes me very
nervous about its future. Lots of
interior room though. Soft, quiet
ride. Rear seat too heavy--needs two
people to remove.
Worst FeaturesEngine/transmission reliability. Better/more stereo speakers. Lighter, easier to remove third row seat.
