Ford Recalls 52,000 Trucks That Can Move While In Park

Apr 02, 2017

Ford Motor Co. is recalling 52,000 Ford F-250 trucks over concerns the vehicles could move while in park, the company said Saturday.

The Michigan-based automobile company issued a safety compliance recall for the thousands 6.2-liter models of the trucks and advised owners to use the car’s parking brakes.

“In the affected vehicles, a damaged park rod actuating plate might not achieve mechanical park within the automatic transmission after the driver moves the shift lever to park,” the company said in a statement on its website. “If the parking brake is not applied, this could result in unintended vehicle movement with the gear selector in park without warning, increasing the risk of injury or crash.”

Ford said it is not aware of any injuries or accidents that were caused as a result of the parking brake issue.

The recall affects 48,421 vehicles in the United States and territories as well as 4,143 of them in Canada. The company said the fix required for the recall will come at no cost to customers.
