Too Many Repair Bills
By springers on


1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


Admittedly bought this car "as is" from a used car lot, but seems like an awful lot in repair bills in one year for a vehicle with only about 110,000 miles: Head gasket $1,700. Alternator $560. Transmission $2,300. Already more in repairs than I paid for it. Which is frustrating as otherwise it's comfortable to drive, and has the room I need to haul stuff around when the seats are taken out.

Best Features

Comfortable to drive, good visibility, hauling room when seats taken out.

Worst Features

More reliable engine, fix strange electric issues ('door ajar' warning beep and light comes on while driving even though doors are all shut)
