Ford Motor said Wednesday that it is recalling more than 270,000 Fusion vehicles in North America to fix a transmission glitch that can cause the car to shift gears and roll away.
The recall is for 2013-16 Fusion vehicles with 2.5-liter engines that were built at the automaker's Flat Rock, Michigan, and Hermosillo, Mexico, assembly plants.
The company said the bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the vehicle's transmission may detach, which can result in "unintended vehicle movement." Ford said it is aware of three reports of property damage due to the issue and one injury "potentially" related to the problem.
About 260,000 of the cars were recalled in the United States. More than 10,000 and 3,000 vehicles were also recalled in Canada and Mexico, respectively.
Ford also recalled about 3,000 2019 Ranger pickup trucks in the United States and Canada that were built at the company's Wayne, Michigan, assembly plant. The automaker cited another transmission issue for the Ranger recalls, saying that the transmission shift cable bracket in affected vehicles may not have been torqued correctly and can eventually come lose.
This can cause the vehicle to shift into a different gear than the one selected by the driver, which can lead to the pickup truck rolling away and "increasing the risk of crash or injury."
The company said it has not received any incident reports regarding the faulty Ranger vehicles.
