Little Known Bracket Recalled For Causing Big Time Problems in 16,000 Ford Vehicles
Ford is recalling a problem that can cause a sudden loss of power while driving or an unexpected rollaway while parking. Neither of these things are ideal. The issue revolves around excess vibration that can prematurely snap a link shaft bracket somewhere in the powertrain. I'm guessing the transmission? Maybe the flux capacitor? Who can say for sure.
Wherever it is the problem affects nearly 16,000 vehicles:
- 2014 Ford Edge
- 2014-2016 Ford Explorer
- 2014-2016 Ford Taurus
It sounds like Ford is planning on swapping out the brackets even if they don't show any wear. It's a rare instance of an automaker being proactive instead of reactive. Embrace this moment.More information on carcomplaints.com
