Approximately 211,200 model-year 2013-18 Ford Flex wagons, Ford Taurus sedans, and Lincoln MKT wagons are being recalled over concerns that a rear suspension component could break while driving. A rear suspension toe link could crack from heavy use, especially with vehicles that are driven frequently on rough or bumpy roads, increasing the risk of a crash.
Lincoln manufacturer Ford did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-392-3673 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will remove the left and right rear suspension toe links and replace them with newly forged toe links.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
