DETROIT -- Ford Motor Co. has expanded a recall on 2013-16 model Fusion sedans over a potential rollaway risk that allegedly has caused one injury and led to three instances of property damage.
The automaker said Wednesday it's calling back 270,000 additional Fusions, including 10,282 in Canada, after it previously recalled 550,000 Fusions and 2013-14 model Escapes over the same issue of faulty shifter cable bushings. That first recall included 36,887 vehicles in Canada.
The affected sedans come with 2.5-litre engines and have bushings that could detach from the transmission, which could allow the transmission to be in a different gear from what the driver sees on the shifter. That could lead to the vehicle moving when the driver thinks it's in park.
