Dec 16, 2010: USA Today: Ford expands Windstar recall as victim's family speaks out
Ford announced on Aug. 27 that it was recalling 575,000 older-model Windstars in the U.S. and Canada. The recall covered vehicles from model years 1998 to 2003 that were sold in states where the heavy use of road salt can cause more corrosion, including New England, the mid-Atlantic and the Great Lakes region.
The automaker said that as of September, 950 complaints about the axles were filed with NHTSA, the most recent figures available. The Center for Auto Safety, a consumer safety group, said the defect had been blamed for eight crashes and three injuries as of September. Ford said none of the injuries was serious.
The automaker said it was adding 37,000 minivans to the initial recall, bringing the total number of Windstars covered to 612,000 in the U.S. and Canada. The company said it began notifying owners of the 37,000 additional Windstars on Dec. 6. The recall was expanded to Utah and to all 2003 vehicles in the road-salt states.
This is a followup to an article from May 2010: Ford Windstar minivan axles investigated
