PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Ford Motor is recalling about 774,696 Ford Explorers because of potential fractures in the rear suspension. A seized cross-axis ball joint may cause a fractured rear suspension toe link.
Impacted vehicles may experience unusual handling or a misaligned rear wheel. Fracture of a rear toe link significantly diminishes steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.READ MORE: New Jersey Native Carli Lloyd Makes USWNT Olympic History, Wins Bronze Medal At 2020 Tokyo Olympics
