Ford is recalling approximately 23,165 model-year 2020 Super Duty F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 trucks equipped with 6.7L diesel engines. A washer within the vehicle’s transmission can disintegrate, causing metallic debris to become lodged in the “Park” mechanism which could prevent the vehicle from achieving or holding the Park position, increasing the risk of a vehicle rollaway and a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 30, 2022. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 866-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will replace a gearset within the transmission.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
