Ford Motor Company on Wednesday issued a recall covering 1.2 million vehicles in the U.S. over a potential suspension defect that could lead to reduced steering control.
The automaker announced that the recall covers Explorer sport utility vehicles models from 2011 to 2017.
The vehicles are in danger of a fractured rear suspension toe link that could diminish steering control and increase the risk of a crash.
Ford noted that one customer said their Explorer hit a curb when the toe link broke, adding that it is not aware of any injuries.
The automaker said it will spend $180 million to fix the problem.
The company also announced two smaller recalls Wednesday related to calibration and engine issues with some trucks.
