Ford Motor Company is recalling 96,015 model year 2015 Escapes equipped with 2.0L engines.
The bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the transmission may degrade or detach.
A damaged or missing bushing may prevent the vehicle from shifting into the intended gear and cause it to move in an unexpected direction. The vehicle may also roll after the driver selects the 'Park' position. Both incidents increase the risk of a crash or injury.
What to do
Dealers will replace the under hood shifter bushing and add a protective cap over the shift cable bushing free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 9, 2022.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 22S25.
