Attention Ford Owners: Important Recall You Need to Know About
Ford has issued a recall for approximately 350,000 SUV's and trucks. The recall is for vehicles not only in the United States, but also Canada and Mexico.
Officials say the recall is due to the fact the operator of the vehicle might be in a different gear than the one displayed on the shift indicator.
The article by the Associated Press says the recall affects the 2018 F-150 pickup and Expedition large SUV with 10-speed automatic transmissions. Also covered are 2018 F-650 and F-750 trucks with six-speed transmissions.
Ford says that on some vehicles, a clip that locks the gear shift cable to the transmission might come loose. The company says a driver might be able to shift into park and remove the key while the transmission is in another gear, allowing unintended movement. Ford says it knows of one crash and one injury due to the problem.
Dealers will make sure the clip was installed correctly and secure it if needed.
