Ford Recalls 1.2 Million Explorer SUVs due to Suspension Issues
Ford has issued a recall on 1.2 million Explorer SUVS, due to a defective suspension. The company says the issue is with the suspension toe link fractures, which can reduce steering control.
The recall affects Ford Explorer SUVs manufactured between 2011 and 2017.
Ford says affected consumers can bring their vehicles to dealerships where mechanics will align the suspension and replace the left and right-hand rear suspension toe links with new, forged ones.
Ford says the reference number for the recall of Ford Explorers is 19S17.
