1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


I purchased this vehicle used with 25,
708 miles on it in Oct. 2000. It now
has over 69,000 miles and the only
things that were replaced were the
serpentine belt (@ 30,000 miles), the
front brakes and both radiator hoses
(@60,000 miles), and a new set of tires
(@47,000 miles). All other items
consist of fluid changes at the
manufacturer's recommendations, with
the exception of the engine oil which I
change every 3000 miles. Each oil
chnage I buy a complete fuel system
cleaner ($5), which eliminates the need
to have your fuel injectors cleaned.

Best Features

Excellent safety record, good acceleration with the 3.8 V6, excellent brakes, traction control, roomy interior with headrests for six passengers. Ride is similar to a large American sedan. Low maintenance costs.

Worst Features

The poor visibility out of rear window Front seat cupholders rather flimsy and not enough cupholders for rear passengers. Radio controls too small. No driver's side door and the elongated driver's door can be interesting to open in tight parking lots.
