Ford is recalling over 2.9 million vehicles at risk of a roll-away accident

DETROIT – Ford is recalling over 2.9 million vehicles in the US to fix a transmission issue that may increase the risk of accidental taxiing accidents.

The recall affects certain Escape, 2013-2018 C-Max, 2013-2016 Fusion, 2013-2021 Transit Connect, and 2015-2018 Edge vehicles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says in documents released Wednesday that a bushing that connects the shifter cable to the transmission can deteriorate or become loose.

This can prevent the vehicles from shifting into the intended gear. A vehicle that has been put into park gear may be in a different gear, allowing it to roll away.

Dealers replace the bushing and add a protective cap.

Owners will be notified by letter starting June 27th.
