2018 Ford F-150 Recall

Ford is recalling around 250,000 model-year 2018 F-150 pickup trucks equipped with a 10-speed transmission. Those built at the Dearborn Truck Plant between Jan. 5, 2017, and Feb. 16, 2018, and built at the Kansas City Assembly Plant between Jan. 25, 2017, and Feb. 16, 2018 may not have properly seated gear-shift cable clip. This means the gear may not match what's shown by the shifter so if you park, it could be in neutral and just roll down a hill.

Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the manufacturer at 866-436-7332, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

Well that doesn't sound good. Hopefully owners give their vehicle a second when they park to ensure its properly in gear. Another reason to be using your parking brake on a daily basis.

I'm usually not an avid parking brake user, but this will definitely spur me to be more vigilant in the future. Just hate how long these recalls can be and they haven't even released a recall schedule yet. Those who aren't aware could have their F-150 roll away from them in the meantime.

It's definitely going to be a long process with how many F150's that may have been affected. Hopefully its a relatively simple and quick fix if its just the result of an unsecured cable. Sounds like all they are doing is resecuring a clip. Haven't heard anything in the news about runaway trucks at least.
