Transmission bucks when shifting gears

1998 Ford Windstar 3dr Minivan


I don't recommend a Ford windstar van, at least not a 1998. When I first got the vehicle the transmission was bucking and when I went to have it replaced with a new trainny, it did the same thing, and they told me this was normal for '98 Windstar vans. Visiblilty is not great on highway. I had to replace the whole ABS system costing me over $1100 and nearly everything else except the engine has had to be replaced. On a more positive, it is a very comfortable car to drive, and it rides very smooth with a quiet engine. Safe car to drive if you do well with poor visibility on the highway. I would not get a Ford Windstar van again, and may not even get a Ford again.

Best Features

Comfortable driver's seating. Cargo and passenger room enormous. Tinted rear windows, 3 row-seating. Quiet ride, smooth sounding engine.

Worst Features

Make it smaller, better on gas. Fix the bucking transmission.
