Ford is recalling approximately 1,700 model-year 2021 Bronco Sport crossovers to replace rear suspension modules that may not have been fully secured to the vehicle’s subframe. The affected vehicles have either loose rear suspension modules or missing bolts that can cause the off-road-focused SUV to be unstable, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule. 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 rear suspension bolts and replace them, if necessary.
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.
