Ford recall 52,000 F-250 pick-up trucks over parking fault 0

Ford has been forced to recall 52,000 of its F-250 pick-up trucks, after a fault was discovered that can cause the vehicles to roll when the automatic transmission lever is in the park position.

The company has released a statement, advising drivers of the 2017 edition vehicles sold in North America, to engage the handbrake when shifting the truck into park mode.

Ford said they were not aware of any accidents or injuries as a result of the fault.

This is the third time the car maker has been forced to issue a recall order within the space of a week.

In late March, Ford had to recall 211,000 US vehicles, after side door latches were found to be potentially faulty.

It also recalled 360,000 cars in both the US and Europe when they discovered there was a potential fire risk in the engine compartment. Ford said they were aware of 29 fires related to the incident but no injuries.
