Ford Recalls 350000 SUVs And Trucks, Citing Problems Putting Them In 'Park'

They say this could mean a driver would put the vehicle in "PARK" however the vehicle would remain in another gear causing the risk of unintended movement.

Ford says there's a problem with a gear locking mechanism - you can put the vehicle in park and take the key out of the ignition, but without the transmission actually being in park.

Ford says it's aware of one reported accident and injury due to the recall.

Certain model year 2018 Ford F-150, F-650, F-750 and Expedition vehicles equipped with a six- or 10-speed automatic transmission are affected.

Tom Keegan said last week that the request would be "promptly reviewed to determine how best we can assist our federal partners". Abbott told the San Antonio radio station KTSA that Texas would increase the number of troops it deploys by 300 each week.


The recall has been done owing to the automatic transmission gear shift cable locking clip not seated properly in some of the models.

The 2018 Ford F-150 vehicles that were manufactured at Dearborn Assembly Plant, January 5, 2017, to February 16, 2018, Kansas City Assembly Plant, January 25, 2017, to February 16, 2018 are a part of this recall.

The recall involves approximately 347,425 vehicles in North America, with 292,909 in the United States and federalized territories, 51,742 in Canada and 2,774 in Mexico.

2018 models of the Ford F-150 pickup truck are included in a new recall that was triggered by potential problems with the vehicles' parking equipment.

Also, despite selecting "Park", if the parking brake is not applied before the vehicle is exited, the vehicle may roll. This condition would allow the ignition key to be removed, with no instrument panel warning message or warning chime when the driver's door is opened that indicates the vehicle is not secured in park.

What do you think of this Ford recall?

In the faulty vehicles, the 10R80 10-speed automatic transmission may be missing a roll pin that attaches the park pawl rod guide clip to the transmission case.

Dealers will inspect affected vehicles and will provide service at no cost to the customer.
