Lincoln Aviator Recall 02V313000
The Gear Shift Indicator May Read Incorrectly
A very small amount of 2003 Aviator models (25) are being recalled because the shift cable can become dislodged from its bracket, resulting in incorrect gear indication on the dash.
If your shift indicator does not read correctly, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your Lincoln dealer. It's helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) when you call.
The transmission shift cable can become dislodged from the shift cable bracket. This could result in the shift indicator reading incorrectly. Dealers will add a strap to the shift cable adjustor to secure it.
