Posted: Thursday, June 29, 2017

Ford issued a safety recall for more than 400,000 vehicles in North America on Wednesday over a defective driveshaft that could result in loss of power while driving or unexpected movement while parked.

The recall covers certain 2015 to 2017 Ford Transit vans and chassis cabs built in Ford’s Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri.

Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries caused by the driveshaft issue.

The problem is that a cracked coupling could cause the driveshaft to separate. Ford said that separation might also cause damage to nearby parts such as brakes and fuel lines.
