Ford recalls nearly 1,700 new Bronco Sport crossovers over suspension problems

February 20, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

The reason for Ford’s withdrawal campaign is quite serious and directly related to the safety of road users.

American auto giant Ford has faced problems with its new 2021 Bronco Sport crossover. The car began to be produced only last year, and now the first recall campaign is starting. It is associated with poorly screwed or completely missing rear suspension bolts.

The problem is quite serious, as some parts may be completely loose. Note that all the vehicles that fall under the recall were produced at the Mexican plant from July 22 to November 24, 2020.

In a comment, company representatives also state that the lack of proper fastening reduces the strength of the car in the event of a rear impact, leading to a higher risk of injury.

The total number of cars with a possible defect is close to 1.7 thousand units. 1,640 of them are in the United States, 24 in Canada and 2 more in Mexico.

Repairs will be carried out free of charge at official service centers.

Earlier, we talked about a massive recall campaign that affects Ford Ranger vehicles. The reason lies in the infamous Takata airbags that come with this model.
