Ford Is Recalling 350,000 Vehicles For Faulty Transmissions
A transmission issue is forcing Ford Motor Company to recall the vehicles after an injury was reported.
The problem is that some transmissions won't stay in 'park,' and then roll after the driver has put it in 'park' and removed the keys.
Ford says it had one report of an accident and injury.
The recall applies to some 2018 Ford F-150 trucks and 2018 Expedition SUVs with a 10-speed automatic transmission, and some 2018 Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles with 6-speed automatic transmissions.
Ford says there isn't a safety light or warning sound to let drivers know their vehicle is not in 'park,' meaning if the emergency brake is not on the vehicle will roll away .
Ford has also issued an second recall that affects models of 2017 and 2018 F-150, Expedition, Mustang, and Lincoln Navigators. In this case, a missing transmission roll pin could cause the vehicles to not shift to park. The reference number for that recall is 18S09.
If you or anyone you know has one of these faulty models, contact or visit your nearest Ford dealer, who will inspect it and make any necessary repairs for free.
