Ford Recalls 1.2 Million SUVs for Steering, Suspension Defect

Earlier today, Ford has issued a recall for its Explorer SUV made between 2011 and 2017 after the manufacturer discovered a suspected fractured rear-toe link problem related to suspension of the vehicles.

According to the latest announcement, the fifth generation Explorers were experiencing this issue. As a result, Ford will invest $180 million to fix the problems and the owners will not be required to pay any potential cost. Additionally, the company revealed that no incident of potential failure or injuries has been reported which can be attributed to the latest discovery.

In addition to this, the company has issued a recall for F-150 pickup trucks to complete a previously incomplete software update. The company revealed that the 123,000 of the total vehicles will get the necessary software update to prevent any occurrence of potential unintended downshift to first gear which might result in loss of control of the vehicles.

This isn’t the first time Ford recalled vehicles to fix similar issues. back in 2014, the company recalled 1.1 million Explorers in North America after discovering power steering related problems.
