Finally getting out from under this
By Jacki S on


1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


Have had bad luck with this one.
Replaced rear wiper motor, ball joints,
tie rod ends, ignition relay, water
pump, mass air flow sensor, and am on
my fourth trip to the tranny shop at
103K miles. This van ditched our
family of five twice driving from NY to
SC for vacations. Owe more on it now
than I can get in trade in, have to
roll extra into new loan. I want to
stay in an American made vehicle but am
very disappointed with reliablity of
this van. Typical problems with
overhead lights/door ajar dummy lights,
overall rattling, lost a hubcap, bad
springs, excessive brake work, on and

Best Features

Seats are comfortable and interior is roomy. AC works great, like the dual air. That's it.

Worst Features

Transmission and overall reliability. Covering the recalled springs with a shroud to reduce the chance of injury,death, or being sued when the springs finally break and puncture the tires instead of replacing faulty springs outright is not my idea of customer service.
