2002 Ford Windstar

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

This is my girl's car, but I drive it all the time. She bought it from a car dealership a few years ago when she needed more room for the kids and her nieces and nephews. She financed it through a credit company, and has had it ever since.

The minivan is pretty neat to drive. I have always liked driving vehicles where the seat sits up higher than usual, and this van has a high seat. It also has an adjustable lumbar support option on the side of the seat, which is nice when my back is sore or tired and I need the extra support for driving long distances. There is plenty of legroom on both the passenger and driver side, and I can easily reach the radio dials and climate controls from the driver's seat. The cruise control feature right on the steering wheel comes in handy on long trips as well.

This minivan has three rows of seats, and the back two are removable. Being able to remove the seats has come in handy several times when we had to haul furniture from one place to the other, or pick up lawn supplies from the hardware store. Although dealing with the latches for removing with the seats is a pain, they don't get stuck or jammed if they haven't been used them in a while.

One feature I really don't like about this van is the placement of the main fuse box. Recently the windshield wipers stopped working and it took a lot of researching and poking around to discover that the fuse box was actually under the hood next to the battery. And then to top it off, the box that held the fuses was nearly impossible to pry open due to it being crammed into a little space besides the battery terminal. Once I finally got the lid off, then I was able to swap out the burned out fuse for the windshield wiper.
