Recall issued on Ford 2010 Fusion, Milan, and Escape.
The national Highway traffic safety administration issued a report recently which recalled certain models of the Ford fusion.

Imagine parking the car and it doesn’t stay where you left it. This scenario is one that every motor vehicle owner hopes to avoid. A piece of equipment called the park rod guide normally keeps a car in place and unable to drive away.

This metal component did not meet a few federal standards, specifically the one addressing roll-aways.

Effected Models

Ford is recalling certain model year 2010 fusion, milan, and escape vehicles manufactured from February 27, through march 26, 2010 . The park rod guide retention pin may not have been properly installed which fails to conform to the requirement of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 114, “theft protection and rollaway prevention”. A vehicle parked without an engaged park pawl and without an applied parking brake may have unintended movement which may cause a crash. Ford will notify owners and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge.

The safety recall began on may 28, 2010. owners may contact ford motor company customer relationship center at 1-866-436-7332 and for the hearing impaired call 1-800-232-5952 (tdd). representatives are available Monday through Friday: 8:00am ? 5:00pm.
