(WKBN) – Ford Motor Company announced three safety recalls this week. The recall includes the 2013 to 2017 Ford Explorers, the 2020 to 2021 F-350 Super Duty trucks and the 2020 to 2021 Lincoln Aviators. In total, the recall involves more than 850,000 vehicles in the United States.
According to a press release from the company, explorers could be having issues with the rear suspension link. The company says this problem can cause malfunctions in steering control and alignment, which could be dangerous for drivers.
Ford says it is aware of six allegations of injuries related to Explorer’s safety malfunctions.
The report lists 774,696 browsers that will be affected by the recall.
Ford is also issuing a safety recall for F-350 Super Duty trucks from 2020 to 2021, affecting approximately 34,855 vehicles. Some vehicles have experienced rear drivetrain disconnection, which could increase the car’s vibration and shaking on long journeys.
Certain Lincoln Aviators are being recalled due to “loose battery harnesses”. It will affect approximately 40,995 airmen from 2020 to 2021. This malfunction could cause a short circuit in the battery, which could lead to a fire in the vehicle.
Owners will begin to be notified of safety recalls in mid-August and invited to have the vehicle inspected. Ford says they are not aware of any vehicle injuries related to Super Duty trucks or Lincoln Aviators.
