2017 F-150 Could Remain in Gear, Even if Your Gear Shifter Says Otherwise

Ford is recalling 15,000 F-150’s from the 2017 model year. David Woods, reporting for CarComplaints.com:

The 2017 trucks are equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions that can remain in gear no matter where the gear shift lever is positioned. Ford says a pin that attaches the transmission shift linkage to the transmission can come out, leaving the shift lever unable to change gears.

In other words, the shift lever might say “park” while the transmission is still very much in “drive.” Until the fix is ready, now would be a very good time to become friends with your parking brake.
