Ford dismissed 52,000 pickup trucks due to manufacturing glitch.

Ford is recalling 52,000 F-250 pick-up trucks over a fault which can cause the vehicle to roll while the automatic transmission lever is in park position, APA reports quoting BBC. F-250 drivers can enter their VIN number on the NHTSA website to see if they have an affected model.

Last week, Ford recalled more than 440,000 vehicles to correct engine fire hazards and doors that flew open during driving.

The automaker didn't mention when the 2017 F-250 recall will begin.

Mike Rogers. "The committee asked her to testify on our own accord and we still intend to have her speak to us", Langer said. Democrats have called on Nunes to step down from his post , while most Republicans in the chamber say they support Nunes.

Ford is urging owners of the affected trucks to use the parking brake to make sure the vehicles don't roll away.

If this happens, could lead to accidents and various damages. The parking detent, the piece of metal responsible for locking place the transmission whenever Park is selected by the driver, was not created to unceasingly support the weight of the vehicle on any major incline.

Included in that vehicle were certain 2014 Ford Escapes, 2014 and 2015 Ford Fiesta STs, 2013-14 Ford Fusions and 2013, 2014 and 2015 Ford Transit Connect vehicles all equipped with 1.6-liter GTDI engines.

The company also added 211,000 vehicles to a previous recall to replace faulty door latches covering 2014 Fiesta and 2013 and 2014 Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles.
