If this happens, could lead to accidents and various damages. If the parking brake is not used, the truck could move even while in park.

To hear there is yet another vehicle manufacturer recall would not necessarily be a surprise at this point.

That recall covers 230,000 Escape SUVs, Fiesta ST subcompacts, Fusion midsize vehicles, and Transit Connect vans with 1.6-liter turbocharged engines from 2013 through 2015.

Affected vehicles include 2014 Ford Fiestas, 2013 and 2014 Ford Fusions and 2013 and 2014 Lincoln MKZ vehicles.
