Safety recall for select 2010-17 Ford Taurus, 2009-17 Ford Flex, 2009-15 Lincoln MKS and 2010-17 Lincoln MKT vehicles for rear suspension toe link fracture issue in Canada only



Ford is issuing a safety recall in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan for select 2010-17 Ford Taurus, 2009-17 Ford Flex, 2009-15 Lincoln MKS and 2010-17 Lincoln MKT vehicles. Some vehicles operated in these Canadian provinces may experience a fractured rear suspension toe link. A fracture of a rear toe link significantly diminishes steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.


Ford is aware of one report of a crash with minor injuries related to this condition in the markets included in this service action.


This action affects approximately 12,000 vehicles in Canada.


Affected vehicles include:


  • 2010-17 Ford Taurus vehicles built at Chicago Assembly Plant, July 2, 2009 to May 25, 2017
  • 2009-17 Ford Flex vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant, May 7, 2008 to May 16, 2017
  • 2009-15 Lincoln MKS vehicles built at Chicago Assembly Plant, May 28, 2008 to Sept. 10, 2015
  • 2010-17 Lincoln MKT vehicles built at Oakville Assembly Plant, July 28, 2009 to May 29, 2017
Dealers will replace the left and right-hand rear suspension toe links with new forged toe links. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S18.

This action affects 211,207 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 15,281 in Canada and 1,396 in Mexico.

My car falls right within the range (2013, built in Chicago in 2012), but entering my VIN at NHTSA Recalls shows nothing. Anyone else?

Unless your user tag is wrong, you don't have a SHO with the Performance Pack or a PISedan, so it wouldn't apply to you.

It's strange.

Here's the nhtsa document on the recalled. New parts numbers below. I wonder if they are same parts across the product line and a worked harder on Pi and SHO modules than on daily drivers.





SHO Forum has a discussion on it.

Maybe I misunderstood. I saw this:
2010-17 Ford Taurus vehicles built at Chicago Assembly Plant, July 2, 2009 to May 25, 2017
and figured that was the criteria.
Don't get me wrong, I prefer my car not be affected.

That first recall applies to Canadian market vehicles only.
