1998 Ford Windstar 3dr Minivan


If I had only known. We thought we were getting a deal purchasing this in '00 with only 20K mi. for $11K...since then we have spent more than we would have to purchase new! Transmission 2 times; once at 30K and now at 80K, chews up brakes, tires annually and is driven less than 12K per year! Lost brakes completely 3 times, something to do with the ABS/traction control. Does not hold an alignment, creeks, squeaks, clunks still after everything replaced...bearings, struts, bushings, steering rack. And than there is the elusive fix to the interior lights staying on, no one can figure it out so battery needs to be replaced frequently! Wish I had known...never would have bought it.
