What are the defects?
The transmission fluid pump gears could fail while driving.
What are the hazards?
Transmission fluid pump gear failure can cause a loss of hydraulic fluid pressure in the transmission, which can result in a loss of motive power. This could increase the risk of an accident and injury to a vehicle occupant or other road users. In the event of a serious accident this may result in death.
What should consumers do?
Ford will contact owners of all affected vehicles to arrange for inspection and repair, free of charge.
