As the only minivan to achieve the U.S. government's highest
crash-test rating for eight straight years, the 2003 Ford
Windstar is at the forefront in providing families with
a safe vehicle for their transportation needs. Durability
is another key feature of the 2003 Ford Windstar, as its
sturdy construction translates into a long and fruitful
life. With configurations that go from value to extreme
refinement, the 2003 Ford Windstar can satisfy practically
every discerning taste.
The 2003 Ford Windstar has a 7-passenger body length with
dual side sliding doors. It is available in four models:
LX, SE, SEL and Limited.
The 2003 Ford Windstar is designed for families, and in
that vein manufactures have equipped models with the necessary
interior features. LX models feature air conditioning, power
steering, front passenger area carpeting and cloth headliner,
power mirrors, windows and door locks and an AM/FM radio.
The SE adds such standards as rear air conditioning with
rear controls, cruise control, remote keyless entry and
an AM/FM/cassette/CD player.
At the upper half of the lineup, the SEL and Limited combine
the features of the LX and SE and throw in a few of their
own for good measure. The top-line Limited has a leather-wrapped
steering wheel, quad bucket seats, 6-way power driver seat
with power lumbar adjustment, heated power mirrors with
turn signals and rear radio controls.
The 2003 Windstar retains the same basic design as previous
models, but adds more aerodynamic side view mirrors, beltline
moldings and B-pillar appliqués to reduce wind turbulence
along the sides of the vehicle.
Each and every Windstar model is given the same capable
engine. It is a 3.8-liter V6 that doles out 200 horsepower
at 4900 rpm and 232 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm. 4-speed
automatic transmission is standard, providing a fuel economy
of 17/23 mpg (city/hwy). The result is enough power to handle
full capacity and then some for whatever is in the trunk.
Safety and Security
As was previously mentioned, the Windstar's attention to
safety is unparalleled. The safety system includes antilock
brakes and dual front airbags and uses an electronic crash
severity sensor, a restraint control module, driver's seat
position sensor, safety-belt pretensioners, energy management
retractors and front outboard safety belt usage sensors
to help protect the driver and front passenger in certain
