Ford Motor Co. is recalling 75,364 2014-2015 model-year Ford Explorer and Police Interceptor Utility vehicles in the U.S. to replace rear suspension toe links.

In these vehicles, the left and right rear suspension toe links might fracture because of poor weld quality. This condition could result in rear suspension noise, difficulty steering or loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash, Ford said in a released statement.

Ford noted it’s aware of one accident and one injury related to this issue.

The affected vehicles include Ford Explorer vehicles built at Chicago Assembly Plant from Jan. 17, 2014, through May 31, 2014, along with Ford Police Interceptor Utility vehicles built at Chicago Assembly Plant from Jan. 21, 2014, through May 13, 2014.

In addition to the vehicles recalled in the U.S., 4,615 vehicles are being recalled in Canada and 1,057 in Mexico. 

Dealers will replace the left and right rear suspension toe links and align the rear suspension at no cost to the customer, Ford said.
