Ford  () - Get Ford Motor Company Reportis recalling around 375,000 faulty Explorer vehicles

The Michigan-based automaker said that the decision has been made in order to fix a suspension problem that caused 13 crashes and 6 reports of injuries.

"Some affected vehicles, sold or registered in certain areas of North America states and provinces where corrosion is common, have experienced a fracture of the outboard section of the rear suspension toe link after completion of a prior safety recall repair. A fracture of a rear toe link significantly diminishes steering control, increasing the risk of a crash," the company said. 'This action affects approximately 350,000 vehicles in the U.S. and 25,200 in Canada."

The company said that those vehicles were built at Chicago Assembly Plant from Sept. 4, 2012, to Jan. 25, 2017. 

It added that they will complete a torque inspection of the cross-axis ball joint and replace it as necessary.

It's worth noting that this is not the first time Ford has recalled its vehicles. In September, the company said that it was recalling over 700,00 vehicles in North America over issues on their backup cameras.

The company is having a great run despite the ongoing pandemic. Its shares surged to an eight-month high when it reported its third quarter earnings on Oct. 29. Currently, its share price is hovering around $7.86.
