Ford Motor Co. has reportedly issued a major recall order in the United States which covers around three million of its vehicles, as per the country's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or NHTSA. A bulk of these potentially affected vehicles were manufactured between 2013 and 2021 and covers several body types cutting across segments.

As per reports, the NHTSA has confirmed Ford recall orders and further informs that the affected vehicles may have a gear-shift problem which prevents the intended gear to be engaged. In the riskiest scenario, the said vehicle may even move in an unintended direction. The models that may be affected include Ford Escape units manufactured between 2013 and 2019, C-Max units manufactured between 2013 and 2018, Fusion units rolled out between 2013 and 2016, Transit Connect between 2013 and 2021, and Edge built between 2015 and 2018.
