Ford Motor Co. has filed suit against auto supplier Dana Corp. for allegedly providing faulty vehicle frames. According to Ford, Dana’s frames were to blame for a recall in 2011 of more than 425,000 Windstar minivans. Ford recalled the vans in cold-weather states after it found that road salt caused them to corrode and break. Dana has denied responsibility for the problem. Ford filed the lawsuit last month seeking reimbursement from Dana. Ford hasn’t said how much it spent to recall and repair the minivans. Interestingly, in spite of the lawsuit Ford continues to buy parts from Dana.
