2013 Ford Explorer SUV

Ford Motor said Wednesday it is recalling about 375,000 Explorer SUVs in North America for a part that can break and result in a crash.

The automaker said the recall covers some 2013-2017 model vehicles due to a possible fracture of the outboard section of the rear suspension toe link after a prior recall was finished.

The automaker is aware of reports of 13 crashes and six injuries related to this problem.

This recall affects approximately 350,000 vehicles in the U.S. and 25,200 in Canada. Affected vehicles were built at Chicago Assembly Plant from September 4, 2012, to Jan. 25, 2017.

Dealers will finish a torque inspection of the cross-axis ball joint and replace it as required. The reference number for this recall is 20S62.
