Ford issues recall on F-150 trucks and Expeditions

The Ford Motor Company has issued safety recalls for select Ford F-150 trucks and Expedition SUVs.

Ford stated that there could be gear shift problems that could make drivers think the vehicle is in park when it is not. This could lead to "unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of injury or crash" according to a Ford Motor Company.

NPR announced that about 350,000 vehicles are being recalled that were made for the 2018 model that have 10 speed and 6 speed automatic transmissions.

The affected vehicles include:

2018 Ford F-150 vehicles built at the Dearborn Assembly Plant from Jan. 5, 2017 to Feb. 16, 2018

2018 Ford F-150 vehicles built at the Kansas City Assembly Plant from Jan. 25, 2017 to Feb. 16, 2018

2018 Ford Expedition vehicles built at the Kentucky Truck Plant from April 3, 2017 to Jan. 30, 2018

2018 Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles built at the Ohio Assembly Plant from April 25, 2017 to March 9, 2018

The problem can be corrected by the inspection of a dealer to verify that the shift locking clip was properly installed. Technicians will adjust the shifter cable and secure the locking clip if the clip is not properly seated. This will be done for free for the customer, said in an NPR statement.

A smaller number of For Expeditions, Lincoln Navigators, and Ford Mustangs are also being recalled, stated by NPR.

Those affected vehicles include:

2017-18 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, Oct. 20, 2016 to March 5, 2018

2017-18 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, Dec. 22, 2017 to Feb. 26, 2018

2018 Ford Expedition vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant, Nov. 28, 2017 to Feb. 14, 2018

2018 Ford Mustang vehicles built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant, Nov. 6, 2017 to Feb. 12, 2018

2018 Lincoln Navigator vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant, Dec. 13, 2017 to March 8, 2018
