Ford issues safety recall for certain 2001-2008 Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner vehicles with re manufactured transmissions for potential issue


Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety recall for approximately 70 2001-2008 Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner vehicles with a remanufactured transmission due to a possible loose shift control lever bolt. In these vehicles, the shift control lever bolt might not have been tightened properly, which could cause the shift lever to disengage from the transmission without warning. This can result in the loss of transmission gear selection and the vehicle could roll away, increasing the risk of an injury or crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

Affected vehicles include certain 2001-2008 Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner vehicles with remanufactured transmissions that were built June 11, 2015 through July 5, 2015.

There are a total of approximately 70 (actual 69) vehicles that might be affected in North America. There are 57 vehicles in the United States and federalized territories, 11 in Canada and one in Mexico.

Dealers will check to ensure the shift control lever bolt is tightened properly at no cost to the customer.

Wow so specific. My (well...daughters, but I bought it and wash it) 2015 Fusion is one of 1.4 million recalled for the steering wheel retaining bolt. I of course told her to not count on her steering wheel staying attached...2 instances out of 1.4 million so far.
