My subframe broke on my Ford Windstar, and caused damage to other parts. Shouldn't Ford be liable and fix the other parts?

The subframe is a recalled part

Your best bet is talk to your local Ford Customer Rep. I would think the subframe would be repaired at no cost, but the rest of the damage, probably not. See if you can get it repaired under Ford's dime. But if your unsuccesful I would think you can claim the other damage under your auto insurance minus your comprehensive deductible.
