Vehicles Affected: Approximately 211,200 model-year 2013-18 Ford Flex wagons, Taurus Police Interceptor and Taurus SHO sedans, and Lincoln MKT wagons
The Problem: Affected vehicles exposed to frequent full rear suspension articulation (jounce and rebound) may experience a fractured rear suspension toe link, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford said it is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to the issue.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the left- and right-hand rear suspension toe links with new forged toe links.
What Owners Should Do: Lincoln manufacturer Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-392-3673, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
