DEARBORN, Mich., April 1, 2017 – Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 52,000 2017 Ford F-250 gasoline-powered 6.2-liter vehicles for unintended vehicle movement while in park. Customers are advised to use the parking brake at all times when shifting their vehicle into park to keep the vehicle stationary.
In the affected vehicles, a damaged park rod actuating plate might not achieve mechanical park within the automatic transmission after the driver moves the shift lever to park. If the parking brake is not applied, this could result in unintended vehicle movement with the gear selector in park without warning, increasing the risk of injury or crash.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
Affected vehicles include certain 2017 Ford F-250 gasoline-powered 6.2-liter vehicles built at Kentucky Assembly Plant Oct. 9, 2015 to March 30, 2017.
The recall involves approximately 52,608 vehicles located in North America, including 48,421 in the United States and federalized territories, and 4,143 in Canada. The Ford reference number for this recall is 17C06.
Dealers will inspect and replace the park rod actuating plate as necessary at no cost to the customer.
