Ford Recall List
November 2020 – Ford Explorer SUVs from model years 2013-2017 recalled for a potential fracture of the outboard section of the rear suspension toe link after an earlier recall was completed, according to Reuters. Ford said it is aware of at least 13 crashes and 6 injuries linked to the problem.
May 2020 – 2020 Ford Expedition SUVs recalled for a potentially defective front passenger Belt Tension Sensor (BTS) which could malfunction, according to the NHTSA. In the event of a crash, the restraint system may not provide the intended level of protection, increasing the risk of injury. Ford’s number for this recall is 20S17.
April 2020 – 2019 Ford Rangers recalled for incorrectly installed HVAC blower motors which could result in an resistive electrical short, according to the NHTSA. A resistive electrical short increases the risk of a fire and serious injury to the driver and passengers. Ford is notifying owners and dealers will inspect and replace the HVAC blower motor free of charge.
Feb. 2020 – Two separate safety compliance recalls have been issued for 2015-16 and 2018-20 Ford F-150 trucks. The front LED lighting on 2018-20 Ford trucks is incorrectly set up, while the 2015-16 pickups have defective engine block heater cables that could lead to a short circuit. The 2 recalls affect approximately 250,718 vehicles in North America, according to Autoblog.
Jan. 2020 – Ford has issued a nationwide recall for more than 240,000 Taurus Police Interceptors, Ford Flex, and Ford Taurus SHOs to repair a weakened rear toe link, according to USA TODAY. The automaker says that the recalled vehicles are exposed to full rear-suspension articulation (jounce and rebound), and may experience a fractured rear suspension toe link. If a back toe link fracture occurs while driving, it increases the risk of a crash.
Dec. 2019 – Ford is recalling certain Explorer and Lincoln Aviator vehicles from model year 2020 for a potential defect in the vapor fuel line which could cause a fuel leak, increasing the risk of fire, crash, and great bodily injury. Ford is notifying owners and dealers will fix the problem, free of charge. The recall is scheduled to begin late in the first quarter of 2020, NHTSA said.
Ford Recalls 1.3 Million Explorer SUVs, F-150 Trucks for Software Problems
June 13, 2019 – Ford has issued another massive recall for more than 1.3 million vehicles to fix rear suspension and transmission control software problems. Affected models include:
- Ford Explorers
- Econoline trucks
- Flex crossover
- Lincoln MKS
- Lincoln MKT crossover
Ford Explorers from model years 2011-2017 are the hardest hit by the new recall, according to CBS News. The problem stems from a rear suspension toe link which can break, limiting steering control. Ford said its dealerships will fix the defective part free of charge.
Ford Expands Takata Airbag Recall
January 4, 2019 – Ford expanded its recall list for vehicles equipped with defective Takata airbags for the 4th time, according to MotorSafety.org.

Ford F-150 Brake Failure Recall
May 25, 2016 – Ford recalled more than 225,000 F-150 pickups for defective master brake cylinders that were reported to leak and fail, increasing the risk of crash and severe injury or death to motorists. NHTSA said it was aware of at least 33 complaints over the problem, including reports of drivers mashing brake pedals all the way to the floorboard with a complete loss of brake power. In other F-150s, brake fluid leaked from the master cylinder to the brake booster, causing the problem. At least 4 crashes were linked to the issue, NHTSA said.
Ford Power Steering Recall
October 4, 2014 – NHTSA issued a press release announcing an investigation into more than 500 complaints of steering problems with the following vehicles:
- 2010-2012 Ford Fusion
- 2010-2012 Lincoln MKZ
- 2010-2011 Mercury Milan
The announcement followed news of a class action lawsuit filed against Ford over a separate line of its vehicles for a nearly identical power steering problem. That suit was later denied class action certification after a judge ruled plaintiffs were unable to sufficiently prove all owners were harmed by the alleged defect.
