Recall 375,000 Ford Explorer SUVs for Suspension Problem

Ford recall 2020

Ford will recall more than 375,000 Explorer SUVs in North America to fix a problem with the suspension that is being blamed on 13 collisions.

The Ford recall covers Expedition SUVs built between 2013 and 2017 at Ford’s Chicago Assembly Plant from Sept. 4, 2012 to Jan. 25, 2017.

The SUVs were sold or registered in 22 states and six Canadian provinces where salt is used to clear roads during the winter. At issue, is the vehicle’s rear toe links that the automaker says may fracture. If this happens, the driver will experience reduced steering control.

Specifically, a toe link puts weight on the tires allowing them to stay on the ground. So far, Ford says there have been six people who were injured in the reported crashes.

Owners are asked to take their vehicle to a Ford dealership. The dealers will inspect the suspension and replace broken or defective parts. A notice is scheduled to be sent out to customers starting the week of Nov. 30.
