Ford is recalling more than a million Explorers because the car may experience a fracture in its rear suspension. Fixing the problem is expected to cost the car maker about 180 million dollars. The recall is for Explorers in model years 2011 through 2017. That’s about one-point-two million SUVs. Ford said when those vehicles ride over rough terrain on a regular basis it may lead to a fractured toe link on the rear suspension. That can affect steering and possibly lead to an accident.
The company is also recalling 12-thousand Taurus and Flex cars. It is also recalling Lincoln MKS and MKT vehicles that were sold in Canada. The company said it is only aware of one crash that was related to this problem.
