Additional information:

Among the 20 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

Ford Motor Company (“Ford”) has recalled an estimated 292,909 model year certain 2018 F-650 and F-750 vehicles equipped with 6-speed automatic transmissions and 2018 Ford F-150 and Expedition vehicles equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions (excluding Expedition vehicles with a Rotary Gear Shift Dial on the console). The gear shift cable clip may not be properly seated, allowing the transmission to be in a different gear than indicated by the gear shift lever position.

According to the NHTSA, if the gear shift cable clip becomes unseated or dislodged, the gear shift lever position may indicate that the transmission is in PARK when it may be in a different gear. Additionally, despite selecting PARK, if the parking brake is not applied before the vehicle is exited, the vehicle may roll. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect the shift cable locking clip and properly seat it, if necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 16, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for the recall is 18S10.
