On Wednesday, Ford Motor remembers more than 270,000 North American mergers to fix a transmission failure that could cause the car to shift and roll away.
The recall is for 2013-16 Fusion cars with 2.5 liter engines that were built on the car mount Flat Rock, Michigan and Hermosillo, Mexico assembly facility.
The company said bushing that attaches shifter cable to the vehicle's transmission can loosen, which can lead to "accidental vehicle movement." Ford said it is aware of three reports of property damage due to the problem and an injury "potentially" related to the problem.
About 260,000 of the cars were recalled in the United States. More than 1
Ford also recalled about 3,000 2019 Ranger pickup trucks in the US and Canada, which were built on the company's Michigan assembly production. The car manufacturer quoted another transmission problem for Ranger recalling that the transmission shift bracket in affected vehicles may not have been properly screwed and eventually lost.
This may cause the vehicle to switch to a different equipment from the one selected by the driver, which may cause the truck to roll away and "increase the risk of crash or injury."
The company said it had not received any incident reports on the incorrect Ranger vehicles.
