Documents released on Friday, April 29, by US safety regulators say a rear axle mounting bolt can fracture and cause the driveshaft to disengage. If that happens, SUVs can roll away if they are shifted into park, without the parking brake on.

Documents say Ford has 235 warranty claims due to the issue, however the company said it was not aware of any crashes or injuries linked to the failure of the affected vehicles.

Depending on the model, dealers will either replace a hub and axle cover, or update the electronic parking brake software. Owners will be notified by mail beginning June 6.

Likewise, the company stated that any repairs required due to the Ford Motor Company recall will be done at no cost to the vehicle owner. Similarly, if a person finds out about the recall after the problem has been fixed, under current National Highway Traffic Safety Administration guidelines, they may be entitled to a refund. To request a refund, submit your original paid receipts to the Service Manager at your local Ford dealer.
