1996 Ford Windstar GL 3.8 from North America
Reliability doesn't work at Ford
The dome light stays on with all doors closed. I solved the problem with a strong water stream and by lubricating all the door hinges.
The transmission died at 113 000 km. I had to make it rebuilt.
I have the bumping speedometer needle problem. The problem seems to be the very tiny spring that put tension on the needle to make it go back to zero.
The van has a high comfort level.
The engine runs great (3.8).
Interior sound level still good for a 7 years van.
The fuel economy is better than what I was expected (12.5l/100km city and 9.5l/100km highway)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
