Issue

Issue:
On certain vehicles, the outer ball joint for the rear suspension toe link may seize. If this happens, the toe link could break while driving. This could cause a sudden loss of vehicle stability.
Note: This recall only affects vehicles equipped with a rear ball joint manufactured by ZF.

Safety Risk:
A loss of vehicle stability could cause a loss of control and increase the risk of a crash.

Corrective Actions:
Ford will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealer to replace the rear suspension toe links and inspect the ball joints. If a ball joint requires replacement, the dealer will replace the rear suspension knuckle.
