Ford Recalling Over 1 Million Explorers, F-150s, Cars Due To Multiple Issues
Ford is recalling 1.2 million Explorers over suspension issues.
If you or someone you know drives a Ford Explorer SUV from model years 2011-2017 Ford has issued a recall, claiming that those vehicles that constantly ride over rough terrain may have experienced a fractured toe link on their rear suspension. The problem with this issue is that it also affects steering and could easily increase the chances of an accident.
According to KLFY, Ford also announced three other smaller recalls:
One is a recall of 12,000 Ford Taurus and Flex cars as well as Lincoln MKS and MKT vehicles sold in Canada. They have a similar problem with their toe links. The affected vehicles range from model year 2009 through 2017. Ford is also recalling 123,000 Ford F-150 pickups from 2013 with 6-speed automatic transmissions that could potentially downshift into first gear unintentionally. And it is recalling 4,300 Ford Econoline vehicles from model years 2009 to 2016 which are used as ambulances or school buses. Those vehicles have a weld in the clutch that could fail, preventing them from moving.
Ford will repair these issues at no cost to the owner. Contact your local dealer for more information.
