Ford recalls F-250 pickups that could roll while in park

Ford is recalling approximately 52,000 2017 Ford F-250 trucks due to transmission issues. They want to inspect the F-250 pickups being concerned that these vehicles can continue to roll after the driver set the automatic transmission lever into the parking position.

The Dearborn-based automaker said it is unaware of any incidents or injuries related to the recall.

According to Ford, the trucks in question are equipped with the 6.2 liter V8 engine and were built at its truck plant in Louisville, Kentucky from October 2015 through this past Friday.

If you drive a Ford F250, some recall information you'll need to know.

Plans of recalling 230,000 vehicles may also commence, this time for fire risk in the engine compartment.

The reproduction of the story/photograph in any form will be liable for legal action.

A total of 52,608 units are affected in North America, with 48,421 units in the US and federalized territories. The company fears that in the event of parking brake failing, the vehicle runs risk of an untended movement with gear selector in peak.

This is the second recall for Ford in recent weeks. F-250 drivers can enter their VIN number on the NHTSA website to see if they have an affected model.

Dealers will replace the defective part outlined by Ford in the release for free. It will notify owners when the parts are available.
