1996 Ford Windstar GL 3.8 from North America
Factory fitted door seals incorrectly fitted - dealer replaced.
Rear power windows malfunctioned - dealers fixed once, but now on the blink, no failures, but in for two recalls.
I have a small family, and safty rating was a big factor in choosing the Ford. 200 hp 3.8 motor also a plus, this van is much faster than all the Brits think, I took it to France in the hot 98 summer, AC was great, and drove all day at 80-90 mph there and back.
Fuel Cost is big drawback, only get about 17-19 combined per US gallon, turning circle could be tighter also.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
