Ford Motor Co. issued a safety recall on Friday for about 350,000 trucks and SUVs in North America that could still be in gear when turned off. The Los Angeles Times reports that the recall applies to certain Ford F-150 trucks and Ford Expedition SUVs with 10-speed automatic transmissions, as well as certain Ford F-650 and F-750 trucks with six-speed automatic transmissions, all from the 2018 model year.
The affected vehicles may have an automatic transmission gear shift cable locking clip that is not fully seated. This means that drivers could potentially exit a vehicle believing the vehicle is in park, which creates the potential for rollaway vehicles. Of the 347,425 vehicles in the primary recall, 292,909 were sold in the United States and federalized territories, 51,742 in Canada, and 2,774 in Mexico.
