1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


We purchased our Windstar new almost 10 years ago. It has been almost trouble free the whole time. We pull a 3,500 pound camper with it and it pulls great. We went from WI to Montana 2 years ago with camper fully loaded 80 to 85 MPH all day with temperature outside in the 90's. It ran great. The mileage averages about 18 MPG, which isn't that good but it has never had any major problems. Have heard a lot of bad things about engine and transmission problems, but we have not had any. I use synthetic oil and flush the transmission every 30 to 40K miles. Very comfortable front seats. Great for those long rides.

Best Features

Great seats, good power, handles well

Worst Features

Better gas mileage. Last model year before 2 sliding rear doors, which we realy could use.
