Ford recalls 35 thousand SUVs

More than 375,000 Ford Explorer falls under the recall.

Ford has announced the recall of 375,000 Ford Explorer vehicles built between 2013 and 2017. It is reported that approximately 350,000 of the cars were sold in the United States, with another 25,000 in Canada. The reason for the campaign was a possible defect in the rear suspension, in which one of the levers could break under the influence of corrosion or reagents.

This is not the first recall for this reason – in 2017, Ford already ran a recall campaign in which more than 1.2 million Explorer were repaired due to possible rear suspension failure. About a year ago, Ford recalled an additional 75,000 SUVs due to an improperly welded rear suspension.

Ford is currently reporting that the company is aware of 13 accidents involving 6 people due to rear suspension failure. Of course, all Ford Explorer owners have already been notified of possible problems with their vehicles.
