Ford Motor Co. is recalling about 7,300 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid vehicles built for the 2013 and 2014 model year over a transmission problem that could allow the sedan to roll after being shifted into gear.
According to the automaker, the problem lies in one of the transmission sensors, which may provide inaccurate data to the powertrain causing the vehicle act like it’s in neutral when it’s in park mode. As a result, the driver might be able to shift the car into gear without pressing the brake.

The affected MKZ Hybrids were manufactured between April 26, 2012 and September 24, 2013. 7,100 units of the 7,300 subjected to this recall were delivered in the United States, while 170 are registered in Canada.

Ford has yet to announced when the recall will begin, but customers can reach Lincoln at 800-521-4140.
