The fact they have no remedy for that is mind blowing. They might as well said...hey we can't do anything so if it catches on fire that sucks.

Also this type of situation is similar(software error with Jeep) to what killed Anton Yelchin...

"A damaged or missing bushing may prevent the vehicle from shifting into the intended gear, and cause the vehicle to move in an unexpected direction," the government website says. "Additionally, the vehicle may roll after the driver selects the 'Park' position."

Correct. The issue for Jeep was solved with a software update literally the same week he was killed but they were slow to the process. Regardless a vehicle moving when it's in "park" but it's not is dangerous.

That's worse than the Jeep issue. There was no software error with the Jeep. That was driver error coming from an absolutely stupid shifter design. I guess you could say it was a software error but the reality is it performed and stupidly designed. Monostable shifters are inane but the error was his, and it's not like they don't have TWO PRNDLs.
I agree with you 100% that it is worse than Jeep especially how many cars are impacted by the recall. I find it appalling that this is an actual issue.

I think this recall is pretty bad considering the scope and sheer number of cars involved. Not to mention the glaring issue of their assembly forgetting to put in a part that is needed.

Ford is still on a roll...........

Ford is issuing yet another safety recall and stop-sale order involving (53,103) 2021 and 2022 Ford Bronco models, for a potentially defective child safety lock mechanism on the right rear door: Ford letter warns 2021-22 Bronco could have faulty child safety lock
FWIW at least that one isn't as dangerous as the other ones. My one friend was going to buy one of those new Bronco's. I told him to wait since it's the first model year, he ended renting an apartment instead.

Interesting.

But, Toyota recalling 2,700 vehicles is a lot less than Ford recalling 2.9 million vehicles.

Since this was their first BEV - surely an embarrassment for Toyota, as they pride themselves on reliability.
I agree. It's the embarrassment that is the biggest failure. Majority of these recalls shock me at how strange they are and how they don't even know how to fix them.

Wow, 100k more. Not looking good for them at all. If that F-150 Lighting has any significant recalls it would be disastrous for ford.
