1995 Ford Explorer RecallsRecall 01X001000
Ford has recalled certain 1995-1997 Explorer and 1997 Mercury Mountaineer vehicles because the sway bar links could fracture. If one or both sway bar links fracture, vehicle stability is affected, which can cause handling issues. Dealers will replace both sway bar links with revised parts.
Ford has recalled Firestone Wilderness AT and Radial ATX tires installed on multiple lines of Ford trucks from 1991 to 2000. On some tires, under extreme conditions, the tread could separate, which can cause immediate tire failure. This may lead to a loss of vehicle control, injury, and death. Dealers replaced the affected tires.
