JULY 2018 — (WXYZ – Detroit) — Ford is issuing a recall for nearly 550,000 2013-2016 model year Ford Fusion and 2013-2014 Ford Escape vehicles due to a rollaway risk safety hazard.

Ford says shifter cable bushings need to be replaced on the affected vehicles.

The bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the transmission may detach from the transmission. A degraded shifter cable bushing that detaches from the transmission may allow the transmission to be in a gear state different than the gear shift position selected by the driver.

Affected vehicles include:

  • 2014 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant between June 18, 2013 and Sept. 15, 2013
  • 2014-16 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant between June 2, 2014 and Aug. 31, 2015
  • 2013-14 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly Plant between May 15, 2013 and Sept. 15, 2013
  • 2014-16 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly Plant between June 2, 2014 and Aug. 31, 2015
  • 2013-14 Ford Escape vehicles built at Louisville Assembly Plant between May 15, 2013 and Sept. 15, 2013

The recall involves about 549,401 cars in North America, including 504,182 in the U.S., 36,887 in Canada and 8,332 in Mexico.

Dealers will replace the shifter cable bushing at no cost to customers.

At this time, Ford has not reported any accidents or injuries related to the malfunction
