Review of the 2003 Ford Windstar

Vehicle: 2003 Ford Windstar LX Deluxe 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Comfort, Reliability, Performance, Secure feeling, All these attributes are what we feel when driving through the White mountains of NewHampshire especially on a dark road far away from anywhere. The Windstar should rate far better then any other minivan on the road today. After repairing cars, vans and tracker trailers over the years and owning other mini vans, I have never felt this strong about any other automobile.




Wonderful

I have owned two Windstars. The first is a 1995, and I still own it. It has 120,000+ miles on it, and she is still running like a champ. It is just as reliable today as it was the day I bought it. The second is the 2003. I wouldn't own anything else but a Ford vehicle. They are the only vehicles that I would ever trust enough to put my children in. Ford is a company that I can safely say truly knows what a growing family needs, RELIABILITY.

Great Van. Don't let some of the hype about reliability scare you. I am more comfortable sending my family out in the van than any we test drove. My wife loved it the first moment she pulled out on the highway. It's driver visabily is great.

Very pleased with my vehicle. Would like better gas milage. It is very comfortable with 4 captian seats.

Vehicle: 2003 Ford Windstar LX Deluxe 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I loved my 97 Crown Vic but my long legs and rebuilt hips were never comfortable. Sawgrass Ford gave me free loaners, usually Windstars, when I left the Vic for service. I noticed that my legs were in a much better position, my legs didn't cramp up from being stretched on low, and the van drove like a charm. I've never been as happy and comfortable with any of the scores of cars I've owned as I am with my Windstar
