1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


Transmission went out at 50,000.
Luckily I had the extended warranty.
Constant problems with sensors showing
a door open when it wasn't. Interior
light would stay on because of this.
Took in to dealer well over a dozen
times. AC made grinding noise
intermittently. Ford dealer never heard
the problem, so wouldn't fix it. Took
it in for that 4 times. Third seat is
very hard to take out. Takes 2 people
to do it.

Best Features

Comfortable and roomy. Easy to get my child in and out of.

Worst Features

Third seat should split and tumble like Honda and Nissan. Needs to have better reliability.
