Ford recalls 2.9 Million vehicles that May Roll Away while in Park
JUNE 2022 — Ford Motor Co. is recalling more than 2.9 million vehicles that may roll away after being put in park.
The defect is caused by a part degrading or detaching, preventing the vehicle from shifting into the intended gear.
The company reported that the recalled vehicles can experience Unintentional Rollaway Due to Detached Shift Cable.
A damaged or missing bushing may prevent the vehicle from shifting into the intended gear, and cause the vehicle to move in an unexpected direction.
Additionally, the vehicle may roll after the driver selects the ‘Park’ position. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash or injury.
