Ford Recalls Over 425,000 Windstar Minivans

Comments Off

Ford has recalled 425,288 Windstar minivans from the 1999-2003 model years and across 22 cold-weather states. The recall is to fix a potential steering hazard, with the NHSTA citing that a separation can occur between a front lower control arm from both subframe rear body mounts, leading to a separation of the steering intermediate shaft and resulting in reduced steering control. It is advised that consumers check their vehicles for "rust, separation and fatigue" and "violent vibrations" of the steering wheel while driving.

This is a potential safety defect. The Windstar has had multiple recalls for different components.
