Ford is recalling nearly 350,000 of its top-selling vehicles, including the 2018 Ford Expedition, 2018 Ford F-150 and 2018 Lincoln Navigator because of a transmission problem that can allow them to roll away while the driver believes the vehicle is in park, reports Torque News.
Ford is recalling 350,000 2018 Ford Expeditions and 2018 Ford F-150s, as well as 2018 Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles, because of a problem with gear shift. The vehicles have automatic transmissions and a clip on a transmission cable, that isn’t installed correctly, can make it appear that the vehicle is in park when it is still in gear. The vehicle can roll, even if the driver has pulled the key and gotten out.
Ford is aware of one potential accident and injury related to the unseated cable clip.
A similar, but much smaller recall was issued for approximately 161 2017-18 Ford F-150s and 2018 Ford Expeditions, 2018 Lincoln Navigators and 2018 Ford Mustangs. In that case, a transmission roll pin may be missing. The missing pin could allow the driver to think the vehicle is in park, when it is still in gear.
