1996 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan


Like many posts here, had no serious
problems to speak of until 75K mi.
The sensitivity of the oxygen sensors;
ultimately replaced them all; head
gasket went this year at 84K.

I've owned a number of 4 different
Fords since 1982; not perfect by any
stretch but this year had to replace
the engine in a 1994 Honda Civic with
104K - That's NEVER supposed to happen
with them; have owned Toyotas (3),
Mazda and an Acura. Fact is, NONE of
these cars have been perfect.

This van was the best deal on the road
when we bought in 1997 with 29K. It
is a comfortable vehicle that has been
surpassed by newer versions by

Best Features

Comfortable seating, rear radio, air; digital speedometer display; all-trac and load level; great field of vision

Worst Features

Seats from that era are heavy and somewhat difficult to remove; engine valves.
