Ford Recalls Windstars

September 6, 2001
Filed under Trailer News

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Ford is recalling nearly
200,000 1997 and 1998 Windstar vans sold in certain Snow Belt states because of a corrosion
problem with their front springs. NHTSA said the coil springs could break and contact the
front tire, and that some tires have deflated due to contact with a broken spring. Ford
dealers are notifying owners and installing protective shields around the springs.
