Ford recalling 273,000 vehicles in North America that could roll away

 

(Reuters) – Ford Motor Co is recalling nearly 273,000 Ford Fusion and Ranger pickup trucks in North America that could roll away if the gear is not in “park” mode, the second largest U.S. automaker said on Wednesday.

The recall covers 270,000 Fusion cars from model years 2013 through 2016 which have a shifter cable that may detach from the transmission, allowing a driver to remove the ignition key when the vehicle is not in “park.” Nearly 2,800 2019 model year Ford Ranger trucks in North America have a similar problem. Ford said it is aware of three reports of property damage and one injury report potentially related to the issue in the Fusions. But it is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the Ranger trucks, it added.
