ford is recalling 1666 2021 bronco sport crossovers in north america, 1640 of which are in the united states, to replace rear suspension modules that may not have been fully secured to the vehicle's subframe. ford has sold just over 13,000 of the crossover-based bronco sport since it went on sale late last year.
some of the affected bronco sport vehicles have either loose rear suspension modules or missing bolts, ford stated in a release. this can cause the off-road-focused crossover to be unstable, increasing the risk of a crash. ford says that it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue as of this writing.
the affected bronco sport vehicles were built at ford's stamping and assembly plant in hermosillo, mexico, between july 22 and november 24, 2020.
bronco sport owners can check the nhtsa recall website soon to find out if their vehicle is affected. when the recall gets underway, ford dealerships will confirm that the rear suspension bolts are secured and will replace them if necessary.
the 2021 ford bronco sport starts at $28,315 for the base model and can reach up to $39,655 for the fully kitted badlands model. all-wheel drive is standard on all models, and ford is also now offering dealer-installed packages for added outdoor accessories.
