2020 LINCOLN CORSAIR
August 10, 2020
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2020 Lincoln Corsair vehicles. There may be insufficient clearance between the rear coil springs and the rear toe link brackets possibly allowing the components to make contact, resulting in the coil springs breaking.
A fractured rear coil spring can affect vehicle handling. Additionally, a broken rear coil spring may separate from the vehicle and potentially become a road hazard. Either scenario can increase the risk of a crash.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect for proper clearance between the toe link bracket and coil spring. If necessary, the toe link bracket edge will be trimmed according to the service procedure and a new coil spring will be installed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 21, 2020. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 20S41.
