Ford F-250 Recall

CBJ — Ford is recalling 53,000 2017 F-250 trucks in Canada and the U.S. because they can roll away when parked due to a manufacturing error.

Ford says drivers should use the parking brake to make sure that parked vehicles don’t move.

Dealers will replace the defective part for free, but Ford doesn’t have the replacement parts yet. It will notify owners when the parts are available.

The recalled trucks have 6.2-litre engines. They were built at a Kentucky plant from October 2015 through Thursday and sold in North America. A total of 4,143 of the affected vehicles were sold in Canada, while the rest were sold in the U.S.

The company has not been made aware of any accidents or injuries due to the defect.
