In the Ford Windstar the automaker fears a rear axle may not be safe.
Ford said Wednesday that the Windstars were recalled in 2010 due to axle cracks that could grow and lead to complete failure and a crash. There was a previous recall for this issue, but the bracket that was installed to fix the issue may have been incorrectly installed, which limits its effectiveness.
Ford said it’s aware of one accident that could be a result of this problem, but that is is not aware of any injuries.
Dealers will replace the shift control bracket for free.
Owner can take the vans to dealers, who will inspect them to make sure the brackets were properly installed and replace the rear axle if they were not.
