Ford has announced it is recalling around 375,000 Explorer SUVs in North America – including 25,200 in Canada – to fix a manufacturing defect that has up to now caused at least six injuries.
The Explorer models are from the 2013-to-2017 model-years.
According to Ford, “some of the affected vehicles, sold or registered in certain areas of North America states and provinces where corrosion is common, have experienced a fracture of the outboard section of the rear suspension toe link after completion of a prior safety recall repair”.
The problem involves a rear toe link that could fracture and affect steering control. This increases the risk of an accident.
