Ford Recalls F-250 Trucks Due To Park Flaw
Ford is recalling some of its F250 pickup trucks in the United States and Canada because the units have the tendency to move after their automatic transmission levers are rolled into parked position. This has been announced by the company last Saturday, saying that there are about 52,000 affected units in the mentioned countries. The vehicles in question were reportedly manufactured from October 2015 to March 2017.
As per Reuters, the recall affects 2017 models of the F-250 with 6.2-liter gasoline engine and was built in Louisville, Kentucky. Right now, Ford says that they are unaware of any accidents or injuries that were brought about by the said issue. Nevertheless, this is not the only recall that the company has announced in a week's time. On Wednesday, Ford also announced the recall of 211,000 cars in North America. The fault in this recall is associated with faulty side door latches.
Among the Ford recalls from the past years, the Michigan-based carmaker had announced the door latch problem on six different occasions since three years ago. This includes the 2.4 million cars that were recalled just last year.
Moreover, on Ford 2017 recalls, there are also 230,000 affected cars on a separate recall wherein the units are reportedly at risk of fire in the engine compartment. Ford was transparent on the matter and shared that there have already been 29 reports of fires related to the issue. Nonetheless, there were no injuries reported.
As for the latest Ford recall that affects the F-250, drivers are advised to always use the parking brake when shifting to a park position. Ford explains that the affected vehicles have damaged park rod actuating plate and dealers will be inspecting the potentially affected units at no additional costs for the customers. The company shared that there are 48,421 affected units in the US and 4,143 units in Canada. The reference number for this Ford recall is 17C06.
