The rear axle on my 2001 Ford winstar cracked and broke. This is a safety issue and engineering defect and should be corrected by Ford and the dealer.

- the contact stated that the 2001 Ford Windstar frame was cracked. On 02/23/07 the vehicle was raised to see if the cause of a loud noise which came from the rear passenger tire could be found. She stated that the tire leaned inward. It was observed that the frame had a crack about 3 inches from the brake drum. The contact had not called anyone to find out what should be done. A new framed was installed on the vehicle. She stated that she still has the tire that came from the vehicle. The contact will submit pictures of the tire and of the cracked frame from the vehicle. The current mileage was 90000. The axle was replaced. Updated 04/05/07.
