Ford have issued a recall for their Ranger and Everest 4WDs, which sounds pretty serious. The intermediate steering shaft, which sits between (and connects) the steering column and box, has some dodgy welds that aren’t up to scratch. If the weld fails, your steering disappears. So naturally, recalled vehicles will have their steering system inspected, and any suspect gear will get replaced.
There is a total of 288 vehicles included in the recall, affecting Rangers built between March 18 and April 11 and Everests built between March 16 and April 6, 2018. Click here for the list of Everest VINs. And click here for a list of Ranger VINs.
