1998 Ford Windstar 3dr Minivan


We purchased the vehicle new from the dealership and had great luck until about 30,000 miles. We then kept having basic problems including continual brake problems, Blown head gasket, Intake manifold, Electrical problems on windows and door locks. I have spent an additional $6,000 over 7 years to keep it running with no help from Ford. At this point, 113,000 miles, I will keep it because it's not worth anything unless the transmission or something else goes. This is my last Ford, they have made a loyal Toyota customer from me.

Best Features

The space has been nice to use to carry people around, however the seating requires significant strength to move around if you are removing seats to carry cargo.

Worst Features

Quieter more reliable engine, better brakes, improve the styling, improve the power transmission system. Or put a Ford Emblem on a Toyota or Honda and call it done.
