Affected vehicles were built at Chicago Assembly Plant, May 17, 2010 to January 25, 2017. They have a similar problem with their toe links.

One customer reported hitting a curb when the toe link broke, but Ford said it is not aware of any reports of injury related to the issue. The announcement said the company is not aware of any injuries related to the defect.
