Ford adds 270K Fusions to shifter cable recallby Justin King
The company is also recalling some 2019 Ranger pickups.
Ford has announced two recalls, one expanding a previous Fusion campaign and another for the 2019 Ranger.
After recalling around 550,000 Fusion sedans last year, the company is adding another 270,000 vehicles from the 2013-2016 model years with 2.5-liter engines. The shifter cable may detach from the transmission, allowing the car to roll away after the driver puts the vehicle in park.
"Ford is aware of three reports alleging property damage and one report alleging an injury potentially related to this condition," the company says.
The Ranger recall affects approximately 2,500 vehicles that are prone to a different failure involving improperly torqued bolts that could allow the transmission to be in a different gear than selected.
The automaker is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to the Ranger issue.
