Ford Recalls Nearly 3 Million Vehicles Over Transmission Problem


Ford Motor is recalling 2.9 million vehicles due to an issue that prevents the vehicle from shifting its intended speed, causing it to go in an unexpected direction, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.

Several models are affected

The recall affects the 2013-2019 Escape, 2013-2018 C-Max, 2013-2016 Fusion, 2013-2021 Transit Connect and 2015-2018 Edge models, Reuters said in a notice issued on Tuesday. The vehicle may also roll after the driver selects the “park” position, the notice says. We await further information from Ford regarding the procedure for this recall.

The second biggest reminder after Mach-E

On Tuesday, Ford also recalled 49,000 Mustang Mach-E electric vehicles because a component could overheat and cause a loss of power.
