Ford Motor is recalling about 774,696 Ford Explorers because of a potential fracture in the rear suspension.
A retained cross-axle ball joint can cause a broken rear suspension leg link.
Vehicles that are involved in a collision may experience abnormal handling or a misaligned rear wheel. A broken rear toe link significantly reduces steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.
The recall covers Explorer vehicles from 2013 to 2017 and approximately 676,152 vehicles in North America.
Ford said Friday that it is aware of six reports of reported injuries related to the issue in North America.
