Recall Alert: 10,500 Ford Vehicles

2012 Lincoln Navigator

Ford is recalling more than 10,000 vehicles because the transmission range sensor may be improperly calibrated for Reverse gear, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall affects the vehicles listed below:

In the affected vehicles, the transmission may not go into Reverse, or the vehicle may go into Reverse but the "R" may not illuminate on the dashboard when the driver pushes the shift lever into Reverse in the F-150, Expedition or Navigator. In certain cases, the backup lamp may not illuminate in the F-150, Expedition, Navigator or Mustang. This condition increases the risk of a crash or a pedestrian being struck.

Ford will begin notifying owners June 25, and dealers will inspect and repair the transmission range sensor for free. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
