Additional information:

Among the twenty eight (28) recalls the NHTSA announced this April comes news of the following:

Logo - Ford Motor CompanyFord Motor Company (“Ford”), a Dearborn, Michigan establishment, has recalled an estimated 55,158 model year 2020 Ranger and F-150 vehicles equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions and certain 2020 Expedition vehicles equipped with a Police Performance Package marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Power Train – Gear Position Display May Be Inaccurate

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V197000 reports the transmission shift cable lock clip may not be fully seated, allowing the transmission to actually be in a different gear than the gear shift position selected by the driver.

According to the NHTSA, if the transmission selection does not match the indicated gear selection, and the parking brake is not applied, unintended vehicle movement can occur, increasing the risk of injury or crash in the recalled vehicles.

Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect and correct the shift cable locking clip installation, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 27, 2020. Owners may contact Ford Customer Service toll-free at 1-866-436-7332 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Ford’s designation for this recall is 20S18.
