Best vehicle so far

1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


Best vehicle we have ever owned. Bought
in 98' with 25,000km in perfect
condition. Now have almost 150,000km
and have only done tires and brakes
(once at 110,000km). Pulls our trailer
(albeit a smaller one) and our 16ft
boat with ease. Only knock we can come
up with is a faulty speedometer (at
40,000km approx). Ford said this was
normal and within the tolerances of
manufacturing ($800 to fix). If the
Windstar had a higher towing rating we
would definitely buy another.

Best Features

Power is great (with the 3.8L), rides smooth and comfortable (especially with quad seats) while handling is better than expected for a van. Love the reliability we have enjoyed, space, removable seats and visibility.

Worst Features

Third row seat is awkward and heavy, difficult to remove by one person.
