  • Ford has recalled 1.2 million Explorers because of a rear suspension defect

Ford is recalling 1.2 million sport utility vehicles in the United States over suspension issues that the auto giant said could affect steering.

Ford Motor Company issued four safety recalls in a news release Wednesday morning.

Ford is recalling 1.2 million select 2011-17 Ford Explorer vehicles in the USA due to a problem with suspension which can reduce steering control. A defect could cause a portion of the rear suspension to fracture, making it harder for the driver to steer.

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.
