1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


We bought our van used in 2000(52K
miles). It now has 98K miles. We have
had one major repair (@ approx. 85K
miles)-a sensor on the motor had to be
replaced because of hesitating--a few
hundred dollars. No problems since
then. My only complaints are wind
noise from the driver side window and
the engine sounds a little like a
truck--somewhat noisy. I have three
small children in booster seats, and
we have PLENTY of room. The 3.8L
engine has very adequate power. I
have no problem picking up speed to
merge into freeway traffic. Even after
98K miles it still performs as well as
it did when I bought it--no pinging
even with 87 octane gasoline.

Best Features

Cargo area has enough room for full sized double AND single stroller w/ room left over for groceries!!, good interior layout, good engine performance

Worst Features

body integrity could be improved (wind noise from driver's window), dual sliding doors would be nice
