Ford recalls thousands of pick-up trucks due to brake issue

Ford recalling 53000 trucks that can roll away while parked

Ford recalling 53000 trucks that can roll away while parked

Michigan-based automaker company Ford is recalling 52,000 trucks because of a manufacturing error causing the vehicle to roll even when they are parked.

In the affected vehicles, a damaged park rod actuating plate might not actually shift into park within the automatic transmission.

"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 said. Replacement parts are not yet available, however, but drivers will be contacted when they are ready.

The recall affects 2017 model year F-250 vehicles powered by 6.2-liter gasoline engines, it said in a statement.

All the recalled 2017 F-250 trucks were built in Kentucky between October 9, 2015, and March 30, 2017.

Dealers will also replace the defective part for free, but Ford doesn't have the replacement parts yet.

CarComplaints.com will update this page when additional recall details are released, but F-250 owners with questions should call Ford at 866-436-7332 and ask about recall number 17C06.
