Ford is recalling thousands of newly released trucks that roll away while parked

0

Ford on Saturday announced it is recalling 53,000 2017 F-250 trucks because they can roll away even when they are parked due to a manufacturing error. Yikes.

Ford says drivers should use the parking break to make sure that parked cars don't move.

Dealers will also replace the defective part for free, but Ford doesn't have the replacement parts yet. It will notify owners when the parts are available

The recalled trucks have 6.2-liter engines. They were built at a Kentucky plant from October 2015 through Thursday and sold in North America.

The company says it is not aware of accidents or injuries due to this defect. The announcement comes days after Ford recalled 570,000 vehicles for fire risk and door latch trouble.
