Ford recalls 65,000 Fusions for ignition system defect
Washington, (EFE).- Ford has recalled around 65,000 cars of its highest selling model of Fusion sedans in North America due to an ignition key problem.
According to U.S. requirements, one cannot remove the ignition key from a vehicle with an automatic transmission without putting the gears in the “Park” position.
Bu in the cars to be recalled, the key can be removed from the ignition even if the car is not in the “Park” position 30 minutes after the ignition is turned off.
The norm prevents the vehicles from moving involuntarily when they are stationary.
The defect affects around 56,000 Fusion in the U.S. and some 8,350 in Canada and Mexico.
The automobile company is not aware of any injuries or crashes as a result of the problem.
