Ford Recalls Continued

Ford is recalling 92,022 vehicles due to a defective part which could cause a “loss of drive function” and carries a rollaway risk if the gearshift is placed in park without using the parking brake also.

Ford says that the right-hand half-shaft assembly connecting to the linkshaft “may not have been fully seated” and that “a half-shaft that is not fully seated may move outward over time. If the half-shaft becomes fully disengaged from the linkshaft, vehicles may experience a loss of drive function. Additionally, this condition may result in unexpected vehicle movement if the gearshift is placed in park without the parking brake being activated.”

There have been no accidents, injuries or deaths attributed to this issue. It is an internal safety recall and not listed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall begins on August 25th and Ford will inspect the linkshaft and half-shaft and replace them if necessary.

The affected vehicles are:
2013-14 Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS
3.5 liter all-wheel drive powertrain built between 10/25/11 and 12/30/13

2013-14 Ford Police Interceptor sedans
