Ford recalls over 2.9M vehicles at risk of roll away crashes

— Ford is recalling over 2.9 million vehicles to fix a transmission problem that can increase the risk of inadvertent rollaway crashes.

The recall covers certain 2013 to 2019 Escape, 2013 to 2018 C-Max, 2013 to 2016 Fusion, 2013 to 2021 Transit Connect, and 2015 to 2018 Edge vehicles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says in documents posted on its website Wednesday that a bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the transmission can degrade or detach. That can stop the vehicles from shifting into the intended gear. A vehicle thought to have been shifted into park may actually be in a different gear, allowing it to roll away.

that could certainly be dangerous!
Is one of the vehicles under recall actually a transit bus?

No it would be a full size van, that's just what they call it.

oh okay. It was still a surprise to see the word play.

Having ANY transmission problem can be a serious hazzard....

for awhile some of the LIFT buses (back in the late 1990's) were having transmission problems. Often the transmission fluid leaked. Once I had a driver come for me and the transmission leaked purple-red fluid with its unique odor into the curb of the street and she called Dispatch for another bus. 
They sent another bus, they also sent HAZMAT team for the curb.

I was in at least three vehicles during that period where I could smell the tranny fluid and alerted the driver.
