1995 Ford Windstar LX 3.3 from North America
First day the ABS went out.
Belt kept breaking.
Motor locked up.
This van was really used when I bought it.. I was assured it had been well cared for.
I only owned the van a short time before it blew. I don't even think I got my moneys worth.
I will never own another ford as long as I live!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Well, what do you expect when you bought it with 150,000 miles on it. Mid-90's Wind-star's weren't known for being terribly reliable anyway. The fact that the van even made it to 150,000 at all is something to be said.

We have read many comments about mid-90's Ford Windstars and with all do respect, the Windstar is the worst car we have ever owned. We always perform all the required service at the proper intervals only to have issues with all major components.
We have had the engine, transmission and AC systems replaced on our 1995 LX and now we are having ($$) issues with the ABS system. We would have replaced this van countless times only to be fooled into thinking "it was finally fixed". It's too expensive to keep and too unreliable to count on. It's the reason why rebates on the new ones are so high and the reason why Odyssey's and Sienna's sell for full sticker.
