2003 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

ABS and emergency brake lights come on and off intermittently. Middle seat won't go back up and the door locks don't work half the time.

Windstar 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The driverside seat replaced was replaced once. The seat back had warped and was uncomfortable for driving. While I am a large man, this is the first seat back that I have had to replace in any vehicle. The second seat back has been holding up so far. The first failed within the first year within 60,000 km and was replaced under warranty, but I am afraid that I will be paying for the repair when the second one fails.

Driverside seat replaced for the second time. Both seat back and seat cushion failed. This is unacceptable! I am a large man 325 lbs. And I owned a 1998 Windstar which I did not have this issue in the years that I owned it. This seat and vehicle is a piece of junk. I don't understand how a seat on a 2003 Windstar could fail stucturally twice in such a short time. I purchase this van in Nov of 2003. I have had problems with this seat starting two weeks after purchase and for is unwilling to do correct the problems. They make repairs but the don't hold up and correct the problem once and for all. A new vehicle is a new vehicle if I wanted problems I could have purchased a used vehicle and then this would be somewhat acceptable.

Drivers side seat moves when parked and left alone. This veries from 1/2 inch to several inces. Problem is inconsistant. Also seat back bent and the seat cushion is also not supportive.
