i have a 98 ford windstar family van vin# [xxx] i purchased the van in june of 2002 it is still under warranty and had a full inspection by the service dept according to the dealership when purchased, i was driving by myself on a sunday returning from visiting my elderly parents and as i was driving the interstate a huge noise scared me and i looked to the rear of the van and a window on the passenger side rear vent window was gone, the temp was very cold and no one was around it thank goodness, it could have at a different time cost a motorcycle rider or anyone it could of hit their life or serious injury, i took the van to the ford dealership i bought it from and explained what happened for them to report and also explained i should not have to pay for the repair, i had to pay for it and contacted the ford motor co three times and they do not seem to believe they should take care of this issue, it was a electric window latch that moves the window in and out as a vent that malfunctioned and broke, it is also the only thing that holds it in. i believe i could not have anticipated this to happen and it was clearly a defect and i should be reimbursed and some now that they have caused me so much aggravation. information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr
