Ford F-150, Expedition, Mustang, and Lincoln Navigator Vehicles at Risk of Unexpected Rollaway
even if the shift lever is placed in PARK and the instrument panel display indicates that the vehicle is in PARK, it may still roll away
Ford is recalling certain model year 2017-2018 Ford F-150 trucks and model year 2018 Ford Expedition, Mustang, and Lincoln Navigator vehicles equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions.
What's the problem?
During the manufacturing of these vehicles, a roll pin may not have been installed in the transmission, potentially causing a loss of the PARK function.
As a result, even if the transmission shift lever is placed in PARK and the instrument panel display indicates that the vehicle is in PARK, it may unexpectedly roll away after it has been exited if the parking brake has not been applied, increasing the risk of injury or a crash.
What happens next?
Owners of the recalled F-150, Expedition, Mustang, and Navigator vehicles will be notified by Ford in mid-April 2018. Local dealers will then inspect the transmission to make sure it has the roll pin, installing one if it is missing, free of charge to owners.
For additional information, contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's reference number for this recall is 18S09.
