Ford recalling 53000 trucks that can roll away while parked

If the parking brake is not used, the truck could move even while in park.

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.

The affected vehicles are gasoline-powered 6.2-liter engine vehicles built at the Kentucky Assembly Plant from October 9, 2015 to March 30, 2017. A total of 4,143 of the affected vehicles were sold in Canada, while the rest were sold in the U.S.

The trucks under the recall have 6.2-liter engines.

The Ford reference number for this recall is 17C06. It will include 2014 Escape SUVs as well as the 2014 and 2015 compact Fiesta ST; the 2013 and 2014 Fusion midsize; and the 2013, 2014, and 2015 Transit Connect small van, in the United States. Furthermore, Ford says that dealers should check coolant levels for owners.

SpaceX successfully launches 'recycled' rocket for first time
SpaceX also is working on a passenger spaceship, with two unidentified tourists signed up for a future trip around the moon. Blue Origin secured the patent on the idea, but SpaceX issued a legal challenge in 2014 and won a partial victory in 2015.

The second recall-the faulty door latches-covers about 211,000 vehicles including the 2014 Fiesta and the 2013 and 2014 Fusion and Lincoln MKZ.

In the affected vehicles, the pawl spring tab in the side door latch could break. A door that opens while driving increases the risk of injury.

Ford said it is not aware of any crashes or injuries as a result of the defect.
