Ford recalling 52000 trucks because they may move in park

Posted April 03, 2017

It is better that they chose to recall the vehicles before anyone would have been hurt. Indeed, over the past couple years vehicle recalls seem to have become a little too common.

More than 52,000 Ford F-250 gas-powered trucks recalled to keep them from rolling away.

Included in that vehicle were certain 2014 Ford Escapes, 2014 and 2015 Ford Fiesta STs, 2013-14 Ford Fusions and 2013, 2014 and 2015 Ford Transit Connect vehicles all equipped with 1.6-liter GTDI engines. A door that opens while driving increases the risk of injury.

A surgeon at the local hospital says he believes there are at least 300 people injured and that doctors are running out of blood. Witnesses said they had felt buildings vibrate as the flood began but there had been little time to escape.

Should the cylinder head crack, leaking oil may make contact with the hot exhaust system, causing a fire in extreme circumstances.

Ford says it's not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue. Ford spokeswoman Elizabeth Weigandt explains that the company will send instructions to customers detailing how to check the coolant (to ensure it is of a normal level and temperature).

Dealers will replace the defective part for free, but Ford doesn't have the replacement parts yet. It will notify owners once the new parts are available. Moreover, the auto maker had also dismissed 211,000 Lincoln MKZs, Fusions and Fiestas because of latch problems which could have determined doors to open when the vehicle was on the road. This is actually an expansion for an existing recall, which now brings the total count to 757,000 recalls.
