Failure Date: 11/01/2010

I own a 2000 Ford Windstar, and had the water pump break recently. When the mechanic put the vehicle on the hoist he noticed a large degree of rusting and separation on the subframe connecting to the control arm. This issue needs to be repaired before the vehicle can be driven again as it is a major safety concern - as per the mechanic.
