Last month, Ford Motor Co. issued another recall of Windstar Minivans for a possible structural defect. The auto manufacturer issued the recall after receiving reports from customers that the van's frame corrodes easily and causes the front subframe brackets and mounts to completely separate. The recall includes about 425,000 1999-2003 Ford Windstars.
Ford originally issued a recall of 575,000 of the minivans for rear-axel corrosion last year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigated the vehicles and determined that when the vans' subframe deteriorated it could cause dangerous steering problems for drivers.
The corrosion problem is said to mostly affect vehicles in states with cold weather, like Wisconsin.
