Ford Motor Co. has announced a recall of approximately 211,000 vehicles, including Police Interceptor Sedan and Taurus vehicles for a defect that poses significant safety risks.

Specifically, Ford filed a recall with NHTSA affecting approximately 211,000 2013-18 Lincoln MKT, Ford Flex, and Taurus vehicles including Police Interceptor Sedan and Taurus SHO (with performance pack) vehicles.

The safety issue arises in vehicles that are exposed to high stress conditions such as frequent full rear suspension articulation (jounce and rebound). These vehicles may experience a fractured rear suspension toe link, which significantly diminishes steering control and increases the risk of a crash.  

Ford will contact affected owners and advise them to take their vehicle to their nearest Ford dealership to schedule a FREE repair. As always, NHTSA encourages the public to report any safety concerns to the agency online or by calling the Vehicle Safety Hotline (Toll-Free: 1-888-327-4236)
