Ford Australia has recalled the 2018 Everest and Ranger, over concerns the intermediate steering shaft weld might not be to specification.
According to the company, the potentially dodgy weld could make the steering column detach from the steering gear. If that happens, there's a risk the driver will lose steering, increasing the risk of accident or injury.
Ford has asked affected owners to contact their nearest dealership to have the weld inspected. Concerned customers can call 1800 503 672 for more information.
