1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


We purchased this vehicle because of
its safety crash rating. The way it has
been going with this vehicle, we may
find out how crash worthy it is sooner
than we hope. We have only owned it
since January of 2001 and it only had
18,000 miles on it. It now only has
32,000 miles. We have had to replace 2
ABS censors which were thankfully under
warranty. Now, we have no brakes! You
push the pedal to the floor and hope
you will stop. We have been given an
estimate of $400-$1000 for repairs. As
soon as this vehicle is repaired we are
dumping it. No more American cars for
our family. Our last one was a Dodge
Grand Caravan and the transmission went
outon it at 60,000 miles.

Best Features

Attractive vehicle.

Worst Features

It is amazing that Ford is producing vehicles which they know have serious flaws. This vehicle is known for headgasket failure, brakes problems, air conditioning failure and transmission troubles.
