Ford is recalling more than 240,000 SUVs and cars worldwide due to a suspension part that can fracture and break. This hazard increases the risk of a crash.
The recall includes the following models; the Ford Flex, Taurus police car, Taurus SHO and Lincoln MKT from the 2013 through 2018 model years. Most of the recalled vehicles are in North America.
Ford says if the suspension moves a lot on the vehicles, the rear toe links, which help keep the rear suspension stable and help keep the tires on the pavement can fracture
Ford has also said it’s not aware of any crashes or injuries caused by this problem within the recalled vehicles.
Dealers will replace toe links on both sides with new ones that are stronger. Owners will be notified starting March 2.
