Recall 14V736000

Unexpected Vehicle Roll Away

Recall Details

All modern vehicles with an automatic transmission have an interlock system where the ignition key cannot be removed unless the transmission is in Park. These vehicles are being recalled because this interlock system can fail. If the key is removed when the transmission is not in Park, the vehicle could roll unexpectedly resulting in personal injury or property damage. Dealers will repair these vehicles as necessary to correct this concern.

Our Quick Take

The vehicle may roll unexpectedly while parked because in some cases the ignition key can be removed when the transmission is not in Park.

What Should You Do?

Ford will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning January 5, 2015. If you don't receive notification in a timely manner and believe you should have, please contact your dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call. The Ford recall number is 14C11.

Summary
