Ford Issues New Recall due to Defective Chassis

By Alpert Schreyer on February 17, 2012

The string of 2012 vehicle recalls continues for Ford Motor Company as the auto manufacturer has recently issued another notice due to problems with the chassis’ on certain vehicles. The recall alert, released via the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), concerns Ford F-53 and Ford F-59 vehicles from the 2011-2012 model years and includes approximately 13,239 units.

Specifically, the transmission-selector cable, known as the “PRNLD” (park, reverse, neutral drive and low gear) cable, which controls the vehicle’s transmission gear indicator display can break where it is attached to the transmission control selector arm on the steering column. A break in the PRNLD cable will cause the gear indicator from showing a change of gears preventing drivers from knowing what gear they are in. When a driver does not know if he or she is in reverse, an auto accident in Maryland could easily happen. Ford is expected to begin the recall on March 2, 2012, although the exact date is subject to change. Under the recall dealers will replace the transmission selector arm assembly and the cable free of charge.

Although the recall is much less widespread, it comes shortly after Ford announced the recall of over 450,000 vehicles in January for a variety of transmission and brake problems for other vehicles in their line.

Any form of vehicle defect, no matter how small or large, is a serious issue as it may lead to a driver being involved in a serious wreck. If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective auto part, you have the right to seek compensation for the losses that came as a result. The experienced Waldorf auto product liability lawyers at Alpert Schreyer can aid you in successfully seeking compensation from those responsible.
