Ford Recalls All Transits

Ford Recalls All Transits Featured

Ford Motor Co. is recalling all 2015-17 Transit vehicles except those with a 156-inch and 178-inch wheelbase Chassis Cab and Cut-Away bodies.
In the 372,991 affected vehicles, the flexible coupling connecting the transmission to the driveshaft may prematurely fail.
If the coupling fails, the vehicle will not be able to move under its own power and the disconnected driveshaft may impact and damage the brake and fuel lines. Additionally, the separated driveshaft may allow the vehicle to roll if the vehicle is exited when the transmission is in 'Park' but the parking brake is not applied. These scenarios may increase the risk of a crash.
Ford will notify owners, and as an interim repair, dealers will replace the flexible coupling on any vehicle with more than 30,000 miles. A final remedy repair of a redesigned flexible coupling or a revised driveshaft equipped with a universal joint is being developed and is expected in early 2018.
These repairs will be made free of charge. The recall began July 17.
Ford's number for this recall is 17S15.
