Ford recalls 350000 trucks, SUVs over transmission problem

The first, and largest, of the two recalls involves around 350,000 F-150s, heavy duty trucks and Expedition SUVs.
The recall involves certain 2018 F-650 and F-750 vehicles equipped with 6-speed automatic transmissions and 2018 Ford F-150 and Expedition vehicles equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions.
The company says a driver might be able to shift into park and remove the key while the transmission is in another gear, allowing unintended movement.
According to the Michigan-based company, the "clip that locks the gearshift cable to the transmission may not be fully seated", so the gear state selected by the driver might actually be in a different position. The FCA recall problem was a transmission shifter position indicator that didn't reflect the actual gear the vehicle was in. There is no instrument panel warning message or warning chime when the driver's door is opened that indicates the vehicle is not secured in park.
Also, despite selecting "Park", if the parking brake is not applied before the vehicle is exited, the vehicle may roll.
