About 1.2 million Ford Explorer 2011-2017 cars are being recalled in the United States within the first recall campaign. The manufacturer says there are malfunctions that may increase the risk of an accident. In Canada, the recall will affect 28 thousand cars, in Mexico - one car.

In connection with other problems in the remaining three recalls from the United States and Canada, there are also a number of other models from different production years, the total number of which does not exceed 140 thousand. Ford notes that the company is aware of only two cases of incidents caused by the mentioned malfunctions; one of the cases led to minor injuries.

In 2018, the company announced a number of major recalls in North American countries. For example, in October last year, the company announced recall of about 1.5 million cars in the region due to problems that could lead to the engine stopping; about 2 million cars in North America were being withdrawn due to problems with belts in September of the same year.

Ford was founded in 1903 by Henry Ford, who created it, receiving $ 28,000 from the business for the development of five investors. The company gained fame as the first in the world to apply the classic car assembly line.
