Photo source: Ford
Ford Motor Company is recalling about 11,000 model year 2020 Ford Explorers and Lincoln Aviators.

Eighteen of the affected vehicles were produced with a driveshaft that may fracture along the weld seam. Defective driveshafts could lose the mechanical connection between the transfer case and rear axle, which may result in unintended vehicle movement and/or loss of motive power.

Defective driveshafts may also deform and separate from the driveline and potentially contact the fuel tank, increasing the risk of fuel leaks and/or fire.

What to do

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the driveshaft label and replace the driveshaft as needed.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 20S65.
