Ford Winstar Minivans Need to be Fixed

NHTSA: only fraction of recalled minivans repaired.
The AP (11/17) reported, "The government is urging owners of recalled Ford Motor Co. minivans to get their vehicles fixed." According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "only about 75,000 of the minivans had been fixed by the recall, leaving a large number of vehicles still to be repaired." Concerns "that the rear axles could corrode and potentially break" prompted the August recall of nearly 575,000Ford Windstar models.
