Ford Recalls 52000 Pickups That Can Roll Away

Ford is recalling 52,000 F-250 pick-up trucks over a fault which can cause the vehicle to roll while the automatic transmission lever is in park position, APA reports quoting BBC.

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.

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


The recall affects 53-thousand 2017 model F250 trucks.

More than 52,000 Ford F-250 gas-powered trucks recalled to keep them from rolling away.

The Ford reference number for this recall is 17C06. Even if the vehicle company claimed that there were not reported any accidents or injuries before they discovered this manufacturing glitch, this is the third recall this week for Ford.


Earlier this week, Ford announced that they are bound to recall 230,000 Escapes, Fusions, Transit Connects and Fiesta STs due to possible engine fires.

The company said on Wednesday it was recalling 211,000 vehicles in North America to replace potentially faulty side door latches.
