1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


We bought it new and it has been the
MOST reliable car we have ever owned
(including Toyota Camry, Nissan Sentra,
& Mercedes wagon). This was truly a
reliable warhorse, hauling kids,
pulling 1,500 lb boat/trailer, long
trips or city commuting. The ONLY
repair was replacement of failing brain
controlling intermittant wipers. Van
was totaled last week in 45 mph
collision (no injuries thanks to
airbags, despite teenage passenger NOT
wearing seatbelt). Very sorry to see
this one go.

Best Features

Reliability, comfort, collision safety, & interior space. Stability, power, and brakes in towing trailer (we did not have optional towing package w/ trans. oil cooler, etc). Rear AC and radio controls. Extremely confident and SAFE feel on the road.

Worst Features

We have tried hard to think of improvements we would suggest, and can not think of any (Damned unusual for the malcontents in this family).
