Ford Windstar recall: Auto maker warns axle could break


If you're driving an older model Ford Windstar minivan you may need to get that car back to the dealer, pronto. Ford is issued a recall, warning that corrosion could contribute to the rear axle cracking and could potentially cause an accident.

"An axle breaking is a very serious defect," said Clarence Ditlow, executive director of the Center for Auto Safety, a group formed by Ralph Nader and Consumers Union. He called the recall "long overdue" and suggested it should be in all states.
