Ford Recalls Escape, Fusion, Edge, C-Max, Transit Connect Because They Could Roll Away
Passage is reviewing more than 2.9 million vehicles to address an issue with the programmed transmission. As per Ford’s recording with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a harmed or missing bushing inside the transmission might keep the vehicle from changing into the chose gear. The vehicle subsequently could roll away in light of the fact that it’s not in Park, or it could drive in an accidental bearing when the administrator chooses Drive or Reverse. A vehicle that is stopped when not in Park probably won’t have the option to be restarted.
The impacted models are the 2013-2019 Escape, 2013-2106 Fusion, 2015-2018 Edge, 22013-2018 C-Max, and 2013-2021 Transit Connect.
Passage says the fix includes supplanting the shift bushing and adding a defensive cap over the shift link bushing. Proprietors will be advised by letter on June 27 yet can check the NHTSA reviews site for more data and to check whether their vehicle is impacted. Portage’s review number for this issue is 22S43.
