Ford EcoSport rear suspension problem leads to recall

According to the Government website, 1258 of these vehicles are being recalled because the suspension trailing arm bolts might not have been tightened to the correct torque setting, in which case could cause the bolt to fail, or cause an annoying knocking noise.

The remedy for this Ford EcoSport recall is to replace the nuts and bolts connecting the trailing arm, and then tighten them to the correct specification.
