1998 Ford Windstar Limited 3dr Minivan


Review

This has been a good vehicle,
considering it was an emergency
purchase, but I wouldn't buy one again.
It's all over the road, and has some
funny quirks even my mechanic can't
figure out. Great for hauling people
and stuff, but not very fun to drive.


Best Features

console readout, removable seats

Review

I have driven my 1998 Windstar 142,000
miles. The only maintenance has been
normal items such as oil changes, new
brakes, etc. Not a single problem with
engine, transmission, or other
mechanical items. It has been the most
reliable vehicle I have ever owned.


Best Features

It has better seating for a big fellow than Dodge or other minivans that seem to be made for females.


Worst Features

Engine not as smooth or quiet as some other minivans.

Review

Smoothest riding vehicle I've been in
as far as a minivan goes. Love it!


Best Features

My leather seats and my JBL sound system. I would definately buy another one.


Worst Features

The only thing I would suggest is maybe an extended version of this.

Review

I bought this van from a family friend
who sells cars. Little did I know it
would cost me $3000 a year in repairs
to keep it going. I foolishly bought
it because it looked good and I
thought Ford meant quality. It seems
50,000 miles is about as long as
atransmission will last. My coworkers
soon informed me of numerous expensive
problems they had, head gaskets blown,
steering racks going, springs
breaking, air conditioning controls
breaking, etc....etc. And Ford
standing there saying we stand behind
our product. Aw shucks can't help its
past warrenty. Stay away even if it's
a freebie.


Best Features

It drinks gas and I have Exxon shares.


Worst Features

Stop building junk Ford. This van has cost me 50% of purchase price in 3 years.
