 Friday, May 17, 2019


Ford is recalling more than 270,000 of their vehicles after it was discovered that they can shift gears on their own and “roll away” while in park. According to a release from Ford, the company has issued a safety recall on approximately 2,760 2019 Ranger trucks and 270,000 Fusions made between 2013 and 2016.

Select Fusion models that are equipped with a 2.5-liter engine are being recalled because of a malfunction that causes the shifter cable to become detached from the transmission, which could cause the car to shift gears and roll away if the parking break is not applied.

According to the release, 259,182 of the affected vehicles are located in the United States and its territories, while 10,282 are in Canada and 3,765 are in Mexico.
