Ford recalls 575,000 Windstar minivans in North America

2003 Ford Windstar

FoMoCo said that it will be recalling 575,000 Windstar minivans from the 1998 to 2003 model year in the United States and Canada. The recall is due to concerns that the rear axles can corrode and potentially break.

A total 462,750 1998-2003 Ford Windstar minivans will be recalled in the United States along with 113,000 units in Canada. The company says the axle breaks have occurred in only a small number of cases.

As a part of the recall, Ford dealers will inspect and install rear-axle reinforcement brackets starting Sept. 27.
