DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) – Ford is recalling over 1.3 million vehicles mainly in North America to fix rear suspension and transmission control software problems.

The largest recall covers over 1.2 million Explorer SUVs from 2011 through 2017.

Ford says a rear suspension toe link can break if the suspension moves a lot, which can limit steering control. Ford also is recalling 123,000 2013 F-150 pickups for a second time to stop transmissions from unintentionally downshifting into first gear.
