NHTSA investigates Ford Windstar over front subframe corrosion issues
It seems that the Ford Windstar minivan was prone to quite a lot of defects. Earlier this year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed that it will investigate the Blue Oval model over rear axle corrosion concerns.
Now, the federal body has revealed that it will be expanding that investigation to the front subframe as well. It seems that in states where salt is used during the winter season, corrosion can affect the steering system, eventually causing complete failure.
Around 900,000 minivans will be investigated by the NHTSA, manufactured between 1999 and 2003. Ford has pledged its full support during the inquiry. If a recall will be made, it will be the 11th one suffered by the Ford Windstar during its lifecycle.
