* Michigan - Ford recalls 53,000 F-250 series pickup trucks, they could roll away while in park
Ford is recalling nearly 53,000 of its F-250 series pickup trucks due to the risk that they could roll away while in park due to a manufacturing error. .. The recall affects the 2017 Ford F-250 built at the Kentucky Assembly Plant between Oct. 9, 2015 and March 30, 2017. The truck comes with a gasoline 6.2-liter engine... "In the affected vehicles, a damaged park rod actuating plate might not achieve mechanical park within the automatic transmission after the driver moves the shift lever to park," Ford reports in a news release. "If the parking brake is not applied, this could result in unintended vehicle movement with the gear selector in park without warning, increasing the risk of injury or crash" ... So until drivers are able to get that F-250 into the dealership, make sure the parking brake is active to make sure that big truck doesn't go rolling away...
