1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


At 135,000 miles developed heat gasket
problem and lost the transmission!
The cost of repairing the two is more
than the value of the vehicle. I'm
disppointed. This happened one month
after finally paying of the vehicle. I
was hoping I'd see another year, at
least, before having to worry about
serious problems. Now, I've got a real
nice "looking" van that isn't worth
$300! Rack-and-pinion steering has
been bad also; quoted $800+ to repair
the steering!

Best Features

Chose the Windstar because of it's high safety rating. Was comfortable, but would not classify it as a high level of craftsmanship.

Worst Features

Transmissions, head gaskets and rack- and-pinion steering! (And interior lights! Lot of problems where the dome lights refused to go out!
