U.S. Investigates Ford Explorer SUV Recall Following Power Loss Reports

U.S. auto safety regulators have initiated an investigation into Ford Motor's previous recalls of 710,000 Explorer SUVs following reports of power loss.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is examining the effectiveness of the remedy provided by the automaker.

Ford conducted recalls in April 2022 and March this year for Ford Explorer SUVs from the 2020-2022 model years.

The recalls were aimed at addressing a potential issue with the rear axle horizontal mounting bolt,

which could fracture and lead to the disconnection of the driveshaft.
