2015-'16 Ford F-650, F-750 Recalled for Rollaway Risk

DEARBORN, Michigan Ford is recalling 4,764 2015-'16 Ford F-650 and F-750 heavy-duty trucks because of a rollaway risk, the automaker said on Thursday.

"In some vehicles, the parking brake connector clips were not manufactured to the correct specifications and could break, resulting in unintended movement of the vehicle and increased risk of injury," Ford said in a statement.

There are no accidents, injuries or fires linked to the recall, the company said.

The affected F-650 and F-750 trucks were built at the Escobedo Assembly Plant from January 28, 2015 through April 23, 2015 and Ohio Assembly Plant from January 31, 2015 through November 30, 2015.

Ford dealers will replace the parking brake connector clip. The recall is expected to begin on May 16. Owners can contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332.

No information about the recall has been posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.

Edmunds says: This recall does not begin for several weeks. Owners with an immediate concern should contact their dealer now. Others can wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment.
