National Geographic : 1999 Aug
At Ford, we always listen to our mothers. In fact, 30 of the 1999 Windstar Product Development Team members happen to be moms. Sure, they know torque converters. But they also know diapers, infant seats and juice boxes. And, because they know a thing or two about security blankets, you'll find that Windstar is the only vehicle to earn the government's highest rating -five stars - 1l in both front- and side-impact crash tests. And their innovative thinking made Windstar just about as family-friendly as a minivan can be. After all, mother knows best. *During side-impact crash test, Windstar was equipped with optional side airbags. **Always wear your safety belt and secure children in the rear seat.
