Recall Alert: 2015 Ford Transit – Rear Axle Shaft

Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 1,300 2015 Ford Transit dual-rear-wheel vehicles to replace rear axle shafts. The rear axle shafts could fracture, either causing a loss of motive power without warning while driving, or unintended vehicle movement when the vehicle is in park without the parking brake engaged – increasing the risk of injury or crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

Affected vehicles include certain 2015 Ford Transit dual-rear-wheel vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, May 1, 2015 through June 26, 2015.

There are a total of 1,265 vehicles that might be affected in North America, including 1,170 in the United States and federalized territories, and 95 in Canada.

Dealers will replace both rear axle shafts at no cost to the customer.
