Ford's Latest Recall

On April 6th, Ford announced a recall of about 350,000 trucks and SUVs in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The problem? You think you’re putting your car into the park gear and suddenly you’re watching your vehicle roll away.

The recall includes:

  • 2018 F-150 pickup with 10-speed automatic transmission
  • 2018 Expedition SUV with 10-speed automatic transmission
  • 2018 F-650 truck with a six-speed transmission
  • 2018 F-750 with a six-speed transmission

There is a clip that locks the gear shift cable to the transmission and there is a possibility that it can come loose. You will be able to put your vehicle into park and remove the key, but Ford said there isn’t a guarantee that it’s actually in park. There has been one crash and one injury reported due to this problem. Owners of these vehicles will be notified the week of April 16th to bring their vehicle into their closest Ford dealership so they can ensure the clip is installed correctly, and if not, secure it in place. The recall reference number for the recall is 18S10.

They also recalled a smaller number of vehicles (less than 500) for a possible missing roll pin in their transmission. It has the same effect as the clip, you think you’re putting your car into park but that is not the case.

This recall includes these vehicles that have the 10R80 transmission:

  • 2017-2018 F-150 trucks
  • 2018 Ford Expeditions
  • 2018 Ford Mustangs
  • 2018 Lincoln Navigator

If you are driving one of these vehicles, be extra cautious putting your car into park and make sure your emergency brake is on!
