Defective Shift Cables Prompt Recreational Vehicle Recall from Forest River
Forest River, Inc. is issuing a recall for recreational vehicles with faulty shift cables.
The manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2016 Forest River FR3 and Georgetown, and Coachmen Mirada and Pursuit recreational vehicles. Due to an incorrect shift cable bracket and an improper shift cable adjustment, the affected vehicles can be shifted out of 'PARK' without applying the brakes.
If the vehicle can be shifted into reverse without the brakes being applied, the vehicle may unintentionally move, increasing the risk of a crash.
Forest River is including 217 vehicles in this recall.
Forest River will notify owners, and Ford dealers will replace the transmission shift control bracket and adjust the transmission shift cable, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 30, 2015.
Owners with questions about the recall can contact Forest River customer service at (800) 392-3673.
