Ford Recalls 350,000 F-150s And Expeditions That Can Move Even When Parked




Ford recalls about 350,000 vehicles for a transmission problem that could make the car move after the driver shifts it into park and keys removed. So far, one accident and injury has been reported.

Ford says the issue affects 2018 Ford F-150 and Ford Expedition vehicles with 10-speed automatic transmissions as well as Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles with 6-speed automatic transmissions.

An equipment on the affected vehicles can become dislodged over time which means that if the driver shifts the car into park, the car might not actually be in park and there would not be a warning message to indicate that. This will make the vehicle to move if the driver doesn’t use a parking brake.

Ford is also recalling about 161 vehicles across its lineup. Some model years 2017 and 2018 F-150s, 2018 Ford Expeditions, 2018 Lincoln Navigators and 2018 Ford Mustangs are affected.

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.

With no pin and if it remain unfixed, the transmission could eventually lose the ability to be locked in park, even with the shifter display saying that it’s in park. So far no reports of accidents or injuries have been link to this specific recalls.
