Ford Transit Connect Vans Recalled Due to Transmission Problem
Ford has issued a safety recall for 192,000 Transit Connect vans due to the possibility of a transmission component detaching and increasing the likelihood of an accident.
The Safety Recall
The recall affects all Ford Transit Connect vehicles with 2.5-liter engines and 6F35 transmissions manufactured between 2013 and 2021.
According to Ford, the part that connects the shifter cable to the transmission may weaken or detach over time. As a result, the shifter will not get the transmission into the proper gear if this part is damaged or missing.
The issue that triggered the Transit Connect van recall can increase the danger of a crash, although no occurrences have been reported so far.
Owners of Ford Transit Connect vans can bring their cars to an authorized dealer for a free inspection and repair, as per Ford. On June 28, the automaker plans to begin alerting van owners.
If Ford Transit Connect owners have any questions, they can reach the company at 866-436-7332.
Furthermore, car owners can check if their vehicle is part of a recall by visiting the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration’s website and entering their 17-digit vehicle identification number. If their car is indeed part of a recall, owners should contact their local dealership right away to schedule a free repair.
