Ford Recalls 661,000 Explorer SUVs in North America on US Regulators’ Request
Ford is recalling 661,000 Explorer SUVs in North America at the request of US regulators, caused by the fact that retention pins in the vehicle could loosen and allow roof rail covers to detach from the car.
The US automaker said in documents posted Sunday that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration first inquired about the issue in early 2020, following 11 reports of roof rail cover detachment. In April, it requested Ford issue a recall, which the carmaker had initially said was not necessary because the low likelihood of a roof rail detaching, its small weight and the fact drivers would likely detect a loose roof rail cover, according to the documents.
Ford in November said it would extend its warranty to cover the issue for 10 years or 150,000 miles before agreeing to the recall on April 30. The recall includes 620,483 vehicles in the United States, 36,419 in Canada and 4,260 in Mexico, and includes 2016-2019 model year vehicles. Dealers are to install push-pins and replace any damaged rail clips and roof rail covers. Customer notifications will start the week of June 28.
