Ford Recalls Transit Connect

June 1, 2021

Ford has issued a safety recall for Transit Connect trucks that have 2.5-liter engines and 6F35 transmissions. The recall covers model years 2013-21.

According to Ford, the bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the transmission may degrade or detach. A damaged or missing bushing could prevent the shifter from moving the transmission to the intended gear position. This could allow the driver to move the gear shift lever to park, turn the vehicle off, and exit the vehicle with no instrument panel warning message or warning chime indicating the vehicle is not secured in park.

Ford said 192,080 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories are affected, as well as 12,629 in Canada.

Dealers will replace the under-hood shifter bushing and add a protective cap over the shifter cable bushing. Customer notifications will begin the week of June 28. The Ford reference number for this recall is 21S24.
