i own 5 of them
By Cabbie on


1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


as part of my cab fleet i own 5 of
these. just after 100k miles everyone
of them needed a transaxle
(transmission). at about the same time
evry one of them needed a new rack
(steering). The front suspension is
very prone to wear, constantly changing
ball joints, idler arms etc. Most of my
vehicles go 500k miles before retirig
at about 6 years old, these arn't
making it. Suggest anybody that gets to
100-120k of normal use get rid of it
quick. The Windstar actually taurus
with a different body. Too heavy for
the chassis and drive train.

Worst Features

use a better transaxle and front end suspension and rack (not the taurus stuff that is currently being used)
