15_Ford_Taurus_Recall.jpg 2015 Ford Taurus; | Manufacturer image

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 7,000 model-year 2015 Ford Taurus sedans, Flex SUVs and Lincoln MKS sedans all manufactured between May 4 and May 23, 2015; model-year MKT SUVs manufactured between May 4 and May 21; and model-year 2015-16 Ford Explorer SUVs manufactured between May 4 and May 23, 2015

The Problem: The parking brake may not fully engage when applied; if this occurs and the transmission is left in a gear other than Park while on a slope, the vehicle could roll away, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will test the operation of the parking brake system and, if necessary, replace the parking brake control assembly for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford will begin notifying owners Aug. 31. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
