1998 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan


I bought this car from a owner dealership because my former car had been in an accident. I'm a poor college student (how many are there that aren't, lol) and needed something to get around town. I was looking for cheap and safe. Well, I got the cheap part! This van has been nothing but trouble now that it's about 10 years old. The ABS computer system is malfunctioning which is supposedly supposed to cost 1500 dollars at least! The head gasket is leaking and soon to break. My oil leaks constantly regardless of attempts to fix it. The side sliding door doesn't shut and causes the indoor lights to stay on, (you have to pull the fuse to reset it). It just has issues. I hate this van!

Best Features

Not really anything except the room

Worst Features

I'm glad they discontinued these, they caused more problems than they were worth. I'll still buy from Ford, but not a van ever again...(by the way I'm getting rid of the van in the next week, lol).
