Additional information:

Among the 56 recalls the NHTSA has announced this May comes news of the following:

Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”) has recalled an estimated 259,182 model year 2013-2016 Fusion vehicles equipped with 2.5 liter engines. In the recalled vehicles, the bushing that attaches the transmission shifter cable to the transmission may degrade over time and cause the bushing to detach from the transmission. The condition could allow the driver to move the shift lever to Park and remove the ignition key, while the transmission may not be in Park, with no warning message or audible chime.

According to the NHTSA, if the vehicle is exited without the transmission being in Park and without the parking brake being applied, the vehicle may unexpectedly move, increasing the risk of a crash.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall is expected to begin May 28, 2019. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s designation for this recall is 19S16. Please note: owners are directed to use the parking brake until the recall remedy repairs can be made. Also please note: this recall is an expansion of 18V471.
