Issue: On certain cars equipped with a 2.5 litre engine, the shift cable may detach from the transmission.

This could cause the transmission not to shift gears when the shifter is moved.

As a result, the transmission could be in a different gear than the gear shifter indicates.

If a driver attempts to exit the car while the transmission is not in Park, and the parking brake is not applied, the car could move suddenly.

Safety Risk: Sudden and unexpected movement of the car could increase the risk of a crash.

Corrective Actions: Ford will mail a letter to owners to advise them of this problem.

A second letter will be sent once a corrective action has been determined.
