Ford Motor Company is recalling about 217,000 model year 2013-18 Ford Flex, Ford Taurus Police Interceptor Sedan, Ford Taurus SHO and Lincoln MKT vehicles.
Vehicles exposed to frequent full rear-suspension articulation (jounce and rebound) may experience a fractured rear suspension toe link.
A rear toe link fracture while the vehicle is being driven increases the risk of a crash.
The automaker says it is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries to date.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the left- and right-hand rear suspension toe links with new forged toe links.
Owners may contact Ford at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 20S04.
