Last October, Ford issued a recall on the 2019 Ford Expedition, and the Lincoln Navigator had to do with the rear toe link. Ford has now issued a recall that covers the 2020 Ford Expedition Police Package with the 10-speed automatic transmission. Ford says vehicles with the rotary gearshift dial aren’t affected by this recall. Ford also recalled the 2020 F-150 and the 2020 Ford Ranger for the same potential issue having to do with the gear shifter cable.

The defect: 2020 Ford Expedition Police Package vehicles with the 10-speed automatic transmission have a gearshift cable clip connecting the cable to the transmission that may not be fully seated.

The hazards: Ford warns that a partially seated gearshift cable clip could potentially allow the vehicle to be in a gear other than what is shown by the gearshift indicator. The problem could allow the vehicle gearshift to be placed in a park without the transmission actually being in park. In the absence of the handbrake, the vehicle could roll-off, increasing the chance of injury or accident.

Components: transmission gearshift cable clip

Affected vehicles: include the 2020 Ford Expedition Police Package SUVs built at the Dearborn Truck Plant from February 18 th to March 19 th, 2020 or at the Kansas City Assembly Plant between February 24 th and March 19 th, 2020.

Number of affected vehicles: The total number of affected vehicles is 55,158 in the United States and federal territories, along with 12,090 in Canada and 681 in Mexico. However, those numbers include recalled 2020 Ranger and 2020 F-150 vehicles.

The fix: dealers will inspect and properly seat the gear shift cable locking clip as needed.

Owners should: contact their local Ford dealer
