1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


Bought Windstar based upon safety
ratings at the time. Thought we had a
great van- but the Check Engine light
went on every time we drove on a trip
over 200 miles. Ford dealer never could
figure it out - or why we had rough cold
starts. Now at 112,000 miles, already
fixed the gaskets and now need a new
transmission. Wish I had checked
consumer reports before I had purchased.
Going foreign, but only because they
have forced me. Will never buy a Ford

Best Features

Comfortable seats, large space behind 3rd seat.

Worst Features

Provide reliable engine and service people who can & will fix instead of waiting until 100,000 mile warranty is up.
