Ford Recalls 700,000 Explorer Model Vehicles Due to Dangerous Defect
Automaker Ford is ordering the recall of nearly 700,000 Explorer model vehicles, citing a defect that could result in a crash.
ConsumerReports.com reports that Ford is recalling 675,000 Ford Explorers model years 2013-2017 due to a defect that could cause the suspension to fracture. The report says that this “could be triggered by a cross-axis ball joint that seizes, causing a rear suspension link to crack.”
#RECALL ALERT⚠️ The recall includes Explorer vehicles from 2013 through 2017 and approximately 676,152 vehicles in North America.

Such a crack could result in reduced steering control and could cause a crash. The company says that a clunk noise and unusual handling are signs that the vehicles may be suffering from the defect.
Ford has reported at least six injuries in North America due to the defect.
