2012 Ford Explorer Recalls
The inside door handles may not return to the proper stowed position when released, due to a faulty return spring in the handle. This can cause the corresponding door to unlatch, especially in a crash. Ford will inspect each inside door handle, and either repair or replace them free of charge to correct the problem.
Due to an internal connection issue inside the steering gear, the electric power steering may stop functioning. This would make it difficult to steer the vehicle. Dealers will reprogram the power steering control module, as well as inspect the steering gear, replacing it as necessary. These repairs will be done free of charge to resolve the problem.
Replacement Ford steering gears may be defective and lock during steering. Dealers will replace suspect steering gears free of charge to resolve the concern.
