Ford sends over 375,000 Explorer for repairs due to suspension problem

November 5, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

This malfunction, which was found on American SUVs, has already resulted in 13 accidents and six injuries.

Ford has announced the recall of its Ford Explorer SUVs. All of these SUVs rolled off the assembly line of the brand’s Chicago plant between 2013 and 2017.

The service offer includes 350,000 SUVs sold in the United States, and another 25,200 cars in the Canadian market.

The defect that caused the start of the recall campaign should be looked for in the suspension. Moreover, those places where corrosion can often be observed are more susceptible to breakdown. The breakdown, in turn, affects the steering of the car, which deteriorates very noticeably.

This increases the risk of getting into an accident. Unfortunately, this forecast has already been confirmed in practice: the manufacturer reports about 13 accidents, in which there were victims.

During the repair, specialists will check the torque of the ball joint of the transverse axle and, if necessary, install a new one. Ford recommends the owner of “problem” cars not to delay a visit to the dealer: it should be done as soon as possible. Recall that last time Ford recalled about 1.2 million Explorer released between 2011 and 2017.
