Pros: Abundant safety features
Cons: Rear seat is heavy if you want to remove it.
Advice: If you love your family and yourself, buy this for all of you !!!!!!It is really comfortable, very quiet and smooth. Freeway driving is a joy. The seats are great and it feels solid and safe on the road. With the 5 star crash rating, side airbags, adjustable pedals, lights on the mirrors to warn othes when doors open and and and.....yhe list of safety features goes on and on.
Pros: Interior seating layout -- front buckets, 2 seat bench, 3 seat bench.
Cons: The side armrests on the driver seat.
Advice: Check out the amount of luggage storage you need. In my model the rear seat can be moved to the middle position to create a larger cargo area. Salesman didn't know about that.After 1,000 miles I like everything about this minivan. Very quiet ride, handles easily, the kids love it, and the controls are all well thought out. I never had a car with a keyless entry before but it is a real convenience too. It has great headroom (I'm 6'-5') but it also fits my 5'-3' wife. So far it is averaging 20 mpg with a combination of short commute city driving and highway miles. With my past vehicles I have had much better luck with Ford than Honda in terms of quality, maintenance, and cost. This is what steered me to the Windstar.
Pros: Back seat radio option
Cons: frequent repairs needed, endless recalls
Advice: don't buydrive is not smooth.
Pros: the dimming lights.
Cons: i do not have keyless entry.
Advice: Get keyless entry.I enjoy driving my new van.I like the rear ac,for the kids and guests to stay cool.I like the comfort level it has all sorts of neat extras that came with it. The only thing i wish we would have gotten and recomend anyone buying one get, is the keyless entry. The doors lock when you get in and go to drive so you have to unlock.They also do not have a lock in the passenger rear doors so you have to unlock the front always to get to the back and this is troublesome sometimes putting three babies into the vehicle.Which they always go first. I love the extra lighter plugs for my cell phone and tv for babies in the back.(our own not included when we bought it). I like the tire pressure check switch and love the sleeping baby lights mode. I love that the rear seats fold for use even when towing kiddos. Overall I think it was a good buy i just wish i would have asked for more.
