Ford Issues Recall On 155K Additional Vehicles
Feb. 22, 2021—Ford Motor Co. has issued a recall on its Bronco Sport SUV, the Detroit Free Press reported.
An issue with the suspension, in which the rear suspension modules may not be fully secured to the subframe, is the cause of recall of 1,666 vehicles. Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries caused by the issue.
Ford is also recalling nearly 155,000 older Ford and Lincoln vehicles for continuing issues involving Takata air bags.
Ford said it is issuing recalls on select vehicles that may have had old and defective Takata air bags accidentally installed in vehicles after they were repaired in response to an earlier Takata recall. Ford said that certain defective air bags had not been "purged" from "service stock" after the new parts arrived.
"Following extensive investigation and tracing, Ford could not account for some of the obsolete Takata service parts, indicating they may have been installed on vehicles as part of collision or theft repairs," the company said.
