Know When to Fold'em
By Ken B on


1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


Its a Minivan. Hoping it was made to
carry family, reliably, economically,
we bought it.

Initial Quality: poor (4-
6 repairs in first weeks). Electrical
problems and a leaking window were
eventually repaired. Once de-bugged,
car performed well for about 3 years
(reg maint only).

Many costly repairs after 3 yrs. The
engine, everything attached to it,
traction control, suspension,
door locks & sensors started
failing. Suggest selling vehicle after
first non-maint repair. Ensuing repairs
doubled, and doubled again, and doubled

Best Features

Engine... now kaput, had strong acceleration. Seats pretty comfortable. Interior cloth seems to resist stains very well.

Worst Features

Put on good tires...makes a HUGE difference. Car is NOT made to last. Do not hold onto it.
