  • Ford Recalls 81,000 Explorers Because of the Suspension Issue

Hundreds of Ford Explorers have been recalled by the company that were manufactured in 2014-15.

A rear suspension problem has caused Ford to recall all of the Explorer and Police Interceptor Utility vehicles which were manufactured and sold between years 2014-2015. 

The problem arose when multiple complaints were filed due to a problem in steering. Research and data collection showed improper welding in suspension toe that led to fracture of the shaft.

A fractured welded part might be the cause of rear noise, loss on steering control and difficulty in steering. This increased the risk of crash while driving. One accident and one injury was reported in this case as well. 

Ford has come up with a solution to this problem. Ford is going to provide the rear left and rear right suspension replaced. They are also going to provide free alignment for the cars that were effected. The notifications are being processed and owners will be notified shortly. 

Almost 81,036 vehicles will be recalled by Ford after this decision. The problem ascended in the Ford Explorer that was manufactured in 2014-15. It was also seen in the Ford Police Interceptor Utility which was manufactured in the year 2014. It was put together in the Chicago Assembly Plant. Both of these models were built between January 2014 and May 2014.

Out of these, 75,364 vehicles were sold in America and other areas of U.S, 4,615 were shipped to Canada while 1,057 were sold in Mexico. All of these vehicles will be effected by this recall.
