Ford Motor Co. issued three recalls on four vehicles in North America to include the 2019 Expedition and 2019 Lincoln Navigator SUVs built in September. These recalls affect nearly 300,000 vehicles.
The Ford and Lincoln SUVs have been recalled for the same reason Ford recalled more than 1.2 million Explorers in mid-June built between 2010-2017.
Unlike with the Explorer recall, the recall for the Expedition and Navigator comes before any reported accidents or injuries associated with the defect.
According to a statement by Ford, “some of the affected vehicles, the rear toe link fastener may not have been properly tightened during assembly. An improperly secured fastener could allow the rear toe link to become disconnected while driving, which could increase the risk of injury or crash.”
Ford has issued more than a dozen recalls within the past five months, including 2020 model-year vehicles.
