Just last month, Ford announced a safety recall that would impact around 400,000 vehicles manufactured in a Kansas City plant between 2014 and 2017. The recall was issued for the 2015 to 2017 Ford Transit van or bus vehicles.
So far, no injuries or accidents have been caused by the vehicles; however, the affected vehicles might be operating with a cracked flexible coupling. This issue could create a separation of the driveshaft, which could cause a loss of motive power while driving or unintended vehicle movement in park without the parking brake applied.
Likewise, if the driveshaft separates from the transmission, it could cause secondary damage to surrounding parts, including the break and fuel lines. If these parts are damaged, it could increase the risk of injury or crashes.
Ford also issued a safety compliance recall for four Ford Police Interceptor Utility vehicles in the United States. These vehicles needed repairs on their second-row seat attachment studs.
Dealers should be contacting affected vehicle owners about scheduling service appointments to fix the issues in question. If you think you might be affected, contact Ford’s customer support line for more information.
