Ford recalls 52,000 trucks with manufacturing snag

IANS  |  New York 

Michigan-based automaker company Ford is recalling 52,000 trucks because of a manufacturing error causing the vehicle to roll even when they are parked.

In an official statement published on their website on Saturday, the company advised the users to use hand brakes when they put the car in park mode.

The company said it was unaware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

"Affected vehicles include certain 2017 Ford F-250 gasoline-powered 6.2-litre vehicles built at Kentucky Assembly Plant October 9, 2015 to March 30, 2017," the company noted.

According to a report in the BBC, it is the Ford's third recall in a week.

"On Wednesday, Ford recalled 211,000 vehicles in North America over potentially faulty side door latches and 360,000 vehicles in North America and Europe that present a fire risk in the engine compartment," the report stated.
