Ford Motor Company is recalling 2,925,968 model year 2013-2019 Escape, model year 2013-2018 C-Max, model year 2013-2016 Fusion, model year 2013-2021 Transit Connect, and model year 2015-2018 Edge vehicles.
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.
Additionally, the vehicle may roll after the driver selects the 'Park' position.
Either situation increases the risk of a crash or injury.
What to do
Dealers will replace the under hood shift bushing and add a protective cap over the shift cable bushing free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed June 27, 2022.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 22S43.
