Affected vehicles that are exposed to frequent full rear-suspension articulation (jounce and rebound) may experience a fractured rear suspension toe link. A rear toe link fracture while driving increases the risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition for the specified vehicles. This action affects 211,207 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 15,281 in Canada and 1,396 in Mexico.

Affected vehicles include: 2013-18 Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant, Sept. 12, 2011 to June 1, 2017; and the 2013-18 Ford Taurus Police Interceptor Sedan and Ford Taurus SHO Performance Pack equipped vehicles built at Chicago Assembly Plant, Aug. 25, 2011 to June 1, 2017.

Dealers will replace the left- and right-hand rear suspension toe links with new forged toe links. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20S04.
