Ford to Recall 2.9M Vehicles over Gear Problem

Ford is recalling around 2.9 million cars due to a faulty item that may prevent the vehicle from correctly shifting gears. According to reports, the vehicles are subject to a faulty or missing shift cable, which prohibits effective gear shifts. Shifting into park, for example, may not fully lock the wheels in place, allowing the car to move.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated in its report that “Ford Motor Company ) is recalling certain 2013-2019 Escape, 2013-2018 C-Max, 2013-2016 Fusion, 2013-2021 Transit Connect, and 2015-2018 Edge cars.” “The bushing connecting the shifter cable to the transmission may deteriorate or separate.

The NHTSA stated in their study that “a broken or missing bushing may prevent the vehicle from shifting into the desired gear, causing the vehicle to drive in an unanticipated direction.” “In addition, once the driver selects the ‘Park’ position, the car may roll.” In any case, there’s a higher chance of a collision or harm.”The under-hood shift bushing will be replaced for impacted vehicle owners who bring their vehicles to a certified dealer. A protective cap can be put over the bushing as well. Ford has issued a number of recalls in recent years, and this is the seventh recall on this technical fault since 2018.

Due to a potential power loss issue, Ford is recalling almost 49,000 electric Mustang Mach-E SUVs and instructing dealers to cease selling them. Following the usage of a DC rapid charger or repeated wide open accelerator pedal events, a high voltage battery main contactor might overheat and either remain stuck open or weld closed.
