the 2000 windstar was suppose to have had the rear axle repaired in 2011. the axle has
broken right where the patches were put. why doesnt ford have to stand behind it? the

You need to file a compliant on the nhtsa website. We have to prove it's unsafe for them to recall their bracket fix

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

so in order to prove their QUICK FIX is unsafe, someone has to die??? I asked that same thing to the Ford motor company head office. The guy hung up on me!
