Ford has recalled certain 1996-1997 Taurus, Windstar, Mercury Sable, and Lincoln Continental vehicles for a concern with the park mechanism in the transmission. The park pawl mechanism may not engage even though the shifter indicates the vehicle is in "Park." This could cause the vehicle to move unexpectedly and cause a crash or injury. Dealers will repair the parking pawl bracket in the transaxle.
