Ford recently expanded their recall of 1998-2003 Windstars to include 37,000 more of the vehicles. The automobile manufacturer issued the initial recall in August after hundreds of complaints that the vehicle's rear axle is susceptible to dangerous corrosion.
Reports indicate that Ford expanded the recall because the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has received 891 complaints about the vehicle's rear axle. NHTSA officials recently warned owners of Windstars to have their vehicle checked for dangerous rust damage. In addition, a 28-year old Massachusetts man was killed in a car accident caused by a corroded rear axle on his Windstar.
In May, Ford denied the possibility of an auto defect or any issues with the Windstar.
