Ford Taurus Recalled For Rollaway Dangers
Ford recalls 2,100 Taurus cars because the keys can be removed without the cars in PARK.

— Ford is recalling about 2,100 model year 2017-2018 Ford Taurus cars because they could roll away and cause all sorts of mayhem.

Ford says the key can be removed from the ignition switch without the car in PARK.

All the vehicles use physical keys and do not have push-button start options, and all the cars were built in Chicago between July 21, 2017, and February 13, 2018.

Although being able to remove the key without the car in PARK is a dangerous condition, Ford says it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries related to the problem.

All the 2,100 recalled cars are in the U.S. and federalized territories, and dealers will replace the shifter assemblies in the 2017-2018 models, although the automaker didn't say when the recall will begin.

The problem is in no way related to ignition switch defects that caused General Motors to recall millions of cars after hundreds of deaths and injuries.

Affected Taurus owners may call Ford at 866-436-7332 and refer to recall number 18C02.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration hasn't released details about the Ford Taurus recall, but CarComplaints.com will update this page when those details are known.
