Passage Motor Co. is reviewing 2.9 million vehicles that might change into unexpected gears in comparison to expected or roll away while left, the third significant review for the automaker this month.
The most recent review influences specific 2013-2019 Escape, 2013-2018 C-Max, 2013-2016 Fusion, 2013-2021 Transit Connect and 2015-2018 Edge vehicles, as indicated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
"A harmed or missing bushing might keep the vehicle from changing into the planned gear, and prompt the vehicle to move in a startling heading. Moreover, the vehicle might move after the driver chooses the 'Recreation area' position," the public authority site says.
Every vehicle model impacted is recorded independently on the administrative site, adding up to 2,925,968 vehicles. The office recognized the automaker's June 10 report to somewhere safe controllers in a letter dated Tuesday.
Portage said in its recording that the organization knows about six reports charging property harm and four reports claiming injury, connected with this worry.
"The transmission may not be in the recreation area position, despite the fact that the shifter position shows that the vehicle was moved to leave. The driver doesn't get an admonition message or perceptible toll," Ford wrote in its review letter to government controllers.
"Main driver is obscure," the automaker said in the letter. "In view of Ford's main driver examination, intensity and mugginess can possibly add to the hydrological breakdown of the bushing material."
