Decent For A Van — Bought this car as a 2003 leftover, there's nothing really remarkable about these vans, they are built quite well, performance is actually good for a van, although the tranny is weak, fuel mileage is pretty bad, but I've seen worse. The appearance is actually a strong point in my opinion.

Great Family Hauler — commuted 70 miles a day in this mini van. Comfortable and easy to drive. it is on a car chassis instead of a truck chassis so the ride is softer. also, it is low to the ground and easier to get into than other mini vans.

electrical problems

Windstars Are No Better Than Bikes With A 50cc Moter — electrical problems are the worst. my abs light and my emergency brake light are always on. the interior lights tent to come on whenever they fell it will annoy me the most. this is a car noboby should have to drive.

Ladies Tank — its great to go places with the kids cus you can strap them in and put on a movie. Its the only time they sit still and remain quiet for more than twenty minutes. Compared to the competition its well equipped. A lot of on board gadgets and plenty of bells and whistles to entertain anyone.

Cons

rear windows dont like to open

Windstar Sport — goes well but park brake cables rubbed through the rear shocks, rear windows dont always work, but the heater works well in front and rear, great to connect ps2 into the tv for the kids on journeys, quick off of the lights and very comfortable drive

Mats Car — I only got it for my family. Its cozy, has a tv and VCR. Bad on gas. looks good, has a spoiler and hardly any plastic on the exterior. Metallic light blue with blue sparkles in the paint. Besides that I only recommend it if you have a family. Mat

Pros

Has gone from Oklahoma to Washington to Kentucky to Iowa to Arkansas several times

Cons

The car, now that it is 11 years old, is beginning to have more and more issues and seems to need work. This could be from the driving along Arkansas dirt roads so much

Getting Tired — Good minivan that my parents bought almost new in 2004 for our move from OK to WA. Difficult to get into the furthest back seats because the seatbelt is in the way. Weird design there... Good minivan however, and seems safe and sturdy. The passenger window has had issues as well as the electronic locks.

Acceleration and power

semis will mess you up

Wind — This is a good Van. lots of room, good acceleration and decent Hp and good gas mileage. it has good highway speed and excellent acceleration over 60 for passing speed it does have a major flaw. Watch out for semi trucks get stuck behind one while doing 70+ and the amount of sway you will feel from the turbulence we get you movin side to side
