Ford is recalling about 52,600 of its 2017 Ford F-250 gasoline-powered 6.2-liter trucks to fix problems that can cause the trucks to roll away and hit anything the trucks want to hit. Ford didn’t release much information but did say the F-250 trucks run on gasoline (not diesel) and can roll away even when the trucks are in PARK. The automaker blames the rollaway risk on a damaged park rod actuating plate that may not move the automatic transmission into PARK. Although the trucks can move with the gear shifter indicating PARK, Ford says no accidents or injuries have been reported related to the F-250 trucks. However, the parking brake should always be applied after shifting the truck into PARK.
All the recalled 2017 F-250 trucks were built in Kentucky between October 9, 2015, and March 30, 2017. Ford says about 48,421 of the trucks are in the U.S. and another 4,143 are in Canada. The automaker didn’t mention when the 2017 F-250 recall will begin. Ford dealers will inspect and replace the park rod actuating plates, if needed. CarComplaints.com will update its site when additional recall details are released, but F-250 owners with questions should call Ford at 866-436-7332 and ask about recall number 17C06.
