Approximately 3,000 model-year 2020 Lincoln Corsair SUVs are being recalled because there may be insufficient clearance between the rear coil springs and the rear toe link brackets possibly allowing the components to make contact. Over time, the coil springs could fracture which could affect vehicle handling. Also, a broken rear coil spring may separate from the vehicle and potentially become a road hazard. Either scenario can increase the risk of a crash.
Ford will begin notifying owners on Sept. 21. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the vehicle for proper clearance between the toe link bracket and rear coil spring. If necessary, the toe link bracket edge will be trimmed and a new coil spring will be installed.
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.
