Ford is expanding a recall of its Windstar minivans over concerns that their rear axles can corrode and break

 The automaker says it is adding 37,000 minivans to the recall, which was announced in August. The addition brings the total number of Windstars covered to 612,000 in the U.S. and Canada.

 The original recall included vans sold in the 1998 to 2003 model years in 21 U.S. states and Canada where heavy road salt can cause the axles to rust. The expansion includes 2003 model year vans with heat-treated axles and vans registered in Utah.

  Ford spokesman Wes Sherwood says the automaker has found that vans in Utah or with heat-treated axles can also develop cracks.
