Ford recalling 52,000 trucks because they may move in park

Ford Motor says it will recall 52,000 F-250 trucks over concerns the vehicles could move while in park.

In a statement, Ford is advising owners of the 6.2-liter models of the F-250 to use their parking brake at all times to keep the vehicle from moving.

"A damaged park rod actuating plate might not achieve mechanical park within the automatic transmission after the driver moves the shift lever to park," reads a statement from Ford. If the parking brake is not used, the truck could move even while in park.

Ford says they are not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the defect.

The affected trucks were built in a plant in Kentucky between October 2015 and this month, and sold throughout North America. Ford says the fix for the recall is free.
