Ford Recall 2019: 1.2 Million Explorer SUVs Recalled For Steering, Suspension Defect

American automaker Ford has issued safety recalls for its popular Explorer SUV made between 2011 and 2017 for fixing the suspected fractured rear-toe link problem at the suspension front.

According to Ford’s update , the affected fifth-generation Explorers were facing frequent “full rear suspension articulation including jounce and rebound.”

This condition was vulnerable for a toe link failure and heightened the chances of a crash because of the snags in the steering mechanism.

Ford dealers will arrange the reprogramming of affected power train control modules and fix the problem.

Jim Hackett, president and CEO, Ford Motor, speaks outside the headquarters as the company celebrates the production of the 10,000,000 Mustang on Aug. 8, 2018 in Dearborn, Michigan.

Chevrolet said even though the supplier was responsible for improper welds of the joints in the front lower control arms, it is recalling cars since the component vitally connects the wheel assembly to the chassis.
