Tall drivers take note

2003 Ford Windstar SEL 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I am one week into owning this Windstar. I'm 6'6" and have a problem with fitting in the newer vehicles especially the imports. This was funny when I was younger but now that I am disabled with arthritis it is not so funny anymore. I have no problem fitting in the Windstar. The only issue I have is the console where the heater controls and radio are located. It is too close for my liking in that it does not give my right leg enough room. But this is an issue I can overlook. I have plenty of headroom, the seats are comfortable, and the ride is fantastic. I really like not having to duck my head to look out the windshield. It's too soon to tell about reliability .
Leather seats, headroom, ride, folding seats, power doors
The controls for the heater and radio should have been moved further away from the driver to improve legroom. On long trips I just use the cruise control and place my leg elsewhere. Otherwise I am very happy with this minivan
