Ford Motor Company issued a recall Saturday after the company found certain Ford F-250 trucks rolled while in park.
Ford is recalling approximately 53,000 2017 F-250 trucks in the US and Canada because they can roll away when parked due to a manufacturing error.
Ford didn't release much information, but did say the F-250 trucks run on gasoline (not diesel) and can roll away even when the trucks are in PARK.
In the affected vehicles, a damaged park rod actuating plate might not actually shift into park within the automatic transmission.
That could be a really bad situation, but it's a reminder that you should always use the parking brake whether there's a recall or not.
The recall involves approximately 52,608 vehicles located in North America, including 48,421 in the United States and federalized territories, and 4,143 in Canada.
The recall affects 53-thousand 2017 model F250 trucks.

The Ford reference number for this recall is 17C06.
