Ford is recalling 2.9 million vehicles due to the possibility of rollaway.

The recall covers certain 2013 to 2019 Escape, 2013 to 2018 C-Max, 2013 to 2016 Fusion, 2013 to 2021 Transit Connect and 2015 to 2018 Edge vehicles.

Why it’s important: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has received many complaints of injuries and property damage that may be related to the issue.

According to documentation provided by the NHTSA, the cables inside the vehicles have the potential to detach or degrade over time, which can result in the transmission of the vehicle failing to shift into the desired gear. This is the big picture.
