Ford Transit Among Those Affected in Three Separate Recalls
Ford has announced three separate recalls affecting various models, with the largest encompassing 400,000 Transit vans.
The Transit recall affects 2015-2017 model year Transit van and bus vehicles with medium, long, and extended wheelbases and chassis cab/cutaways with medium wheelbases. The recall is to replace the driveshaft flexible coupling and it could become cracked. Ford says in the affected vehicles, continuing to operate a vehicle with a cracked flexible coupling may cause separation of the driveshaft, resulting in a loss of motive power while driving or unintended vehicle movement in park without the parking brake applied. Separation of the driveshaft can also cause secondary damage to surrounding components, including brake and fuel lines. A driveshaft separation may increase the risk of an injury or crash, although Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.
