Ford Recalling 774,696 Explorer SUVs Due To Increased Crash Risk


Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 774,696 2013-2017 Ford Explorer vehicles that may experience a seized cross-axis ball joint that may cause a fractured rear suspension toe link.

Affected vehicles may experience a clunk noise, unusual handling, or a misaligned rear wheel. Fracture of a rear toe link significantly diminishes steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. 

Ford is aware of six allegations of injury related to this condition in North America.

This action affects approximately 676,152 vehicles in North America, 59,935 in China, 25,257 in Ford’s International Markets Group (including the Philippines), 13,162 in Europe, and 190 in South America.

Vehicles were built at Chicago Assembly Plant between Sept. 4, 2012 and Sept. 30, 2017, and Elabuga Assembly Plant in Russia between Jan. 28, 2013 and July 28, 2017.

Owner notifications will begin the week of August 23. Explorer owners can get in touch with their authorized Ford dealer or check out the Ford Field Service Actions page for updates.
