Ford Recalls 2.9M Vehicles Over Gear-Shifting
Ford will recall 2013 to 2019 Escapes, 2013 to 2018 C-Max, 2013 to 2016 Fusion, 2013 to 2021 Transit Connect and 2015 to 2018 Edge vehicles. The vehicles affected by the recall could have damaged or missing bushing that prevents them from shifting into the intended gear and might cause the vehicle to move in an unexpected direction.
These vehicles could also roll away even after the driver puts the vehicle in park. Additionally, if the vehicle is turned off in a gear other than the park position, the engine will not restart. To fix this issue, the dealers will replace the under-hood shift bushing and add a protective cap over the shift cable bushing.
