1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


First, the speedometer needle flys
all over the place, then the water
pump needed to be replaced (this is
the 2nd time). The electrical system
is severly flawed (admitted by a Ford
technician at the dealership) There is
nothing quite like the sight and smell
of your steering column smoking while
all the dash lights dance on and off.
Now the transmission needs to be
replaced. I just want to thank Ford
for knowing that this van is one big
piece of junk and instead of proving
their integrity by offering to fix
problems that they have had a
multitude of complaints about, they
instead offer an open palm to accept
our money to fix their junk!

Best Features

Roomy interior...nice large dash layout that you can bang your head against as you see your money flying out the window to fix this lemon!

Worst Features

If you KNOW that there are problems with the vehicle..offer to fix it at your expense, not the consumers..we are the ones who can make or break a company...don't abuse us. Electrical system is a big caution..a fire hazard! Sliding passenger bench seats..these are just too heavy.
