Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.
This action affects approximately 15,587 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, and 367 in Canada.

Dealers will replace the link shaft bracket. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20S63.
Safety recall for select 2020 Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator vehicles
Eighteen of the affected vehicles were produced with a driveshaft that may fracture along the weld seam. Defective driveshafts could lose the mechanical connection between the transfer case and rear axle, which may result in unintended vehicle movement and/or loss of motive power. Defective driveshafts may also deform and separate from the driveline and potentially contact the fuel tank, increasing the risk of fuel leaks and/or fire.
Ford is not aware of any accidents, injuries or fires related to this condition.
This action affects approximately 10,905 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 1,291 in Canada and 102 in Mexico. Affected vehicles were built at Chicago Assembly Plant Aug. 24 to Sept. 30, 2019.
Dealers will inspect the driveshaft label and replace the driveshaft as needed. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20S65.
