Update: 2021 Aviator Recalled for Steering Problem, Crash Risk

Ford is recalling Lincoln Aviator vehicles from model year 2021 which were sold with steering knuckles that could crack, reducing steering control and increasing the risk of a crash. Ford is notifying owners and dealers will inspect the front knuckle, and replace it if necessary, free of charge. This recall began on December 16, 2020.

What’s the Problem?

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain Lincoln Aviator sport utility vehicles which were equipped with potentially defective airbags that could fail during a crash, increasing the risk of severe injuries or death. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:

  • 2020 Lincoln Aviator
  • 2020 Ford Explorer

The side airbag and/or seat back module attachments on affected vehicles may not have been properly tightened in the front seat backs, NHTSA said. If the side airbag or seat back fasteners were not properly tightened, the side airbag deployment could be affected, increasing the risk of injury during a crash.

Ford is notifying owners and dealers will remove front seat back panels from one or both front seats (VIN-specific) and verify that the fasteners have been properly tightened, free of charge.

This recall began on September 10, 2020.

Lincoln Aviator Recalled for Drive Shaft Defect, Crash Hazard

Ford is recalling 2020 Lincoln Aviator SUVs equipped with a 2.0L or 3.3L engine and a 10 Speed Automatic Transmission with the All Wheel Drive package. The drive shaft on affected vehicles may fracture along the weld seam. “Defective drive shafts may fail and cause a loss of connection between the transfer case and rear axle, possibly resulting in a vehicle rollaway when in Park or a loss of drive,” NHTSA said. “Either condition can increase the risk of a crash.” This recall began on December 11, 2020.
