Mercury Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1996 Taurus, Windstar, and Mercury Sable vehicles for an issue with the park pawl mechanism in the transaxle. There is a roll pin that may not have gone through the park pawl shaft correctly. In some cases, the vehicle may not be securely in "Park," which may cause it to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect the park pawl shaft roll pin, and if it's found to be damaged, they will replace it and the park pawl shaft.
