Vehicles Affected: Approximately 3,000 model-year 2020 Lincoln Corsair SUVs

The Problem: There may be insufficient clearance between the left and right rear coil springs and the toe link bracket. This may result in the spring and bracket touching, potentially wearing away the protective coating on the coil spring. Over time, corrosion due to removal of the coating may reduce the full life of the spring and result in a fracture, which may separate from the SUV and cause a potential road hazard for traffic following behind, increasing the risk of a crash.

Lincoln manufacturer Ford said it is not aware of any reports of accidents or injury related to this condition.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the vehicles for proper clearance between the toe link bracket and rear coil spring. If needed, the toe link bracket edge will be trimmed, and a new coil spring will be installed. All repairs will be done for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the autommaker at 866-436-7332, 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.
