Ford Recalls Half a Million Units for Rollaway Risk

By Staff Writer July 27, 2018

Ford Motor Co. is recalling more than a half million vehicles that might rollaway.

Ford is recalling 504,182 2013-14 Ford Escape, and 2013-16 Ford Fusion vehicles, equipped with six-speed automatic transmissions.

The bushing that attaches the transmission shifter cable to the transmission may degrade over time and cause the bushing to detach from the transmission. The condition could allow the driver to move the shift lever to Park and remove the ignition key, while the transmission may not be in Park, with no warning message or audible chime.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the shifter cable bushing, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 30.

Ford's number for this recall is 18S20.

Owners are directed to use the parking brake until the recall remedy repairs can be made.
