Ford has recalled 402,462 Transit vans in North America to fix potentially defective drive shafts, including 370,630 in the U.S, according to USA Today.
The newspaper said the campaign covers 2015 through 2017 model-year Transits assembled at the plant in Kansas City from Jan. 17, 2014, to June 15, 2017.
On the Transit, defective flexible coupling could cause separation of the drive shaft, cutting off motive power, causing the vehicle to move while parked or damaging surrounding parts. Ford said it had not identified any crashes or injuries connected to the defect.
The company said it had not yet figured out how to permanently fix the defect. But it said the Transit does not need to be repaired until the vehicle has been driven for 30,000 miles.
For now, Ford will replace the flexible coupling every 30,000 miles "until the final repair is available and completed," the company said in a statement.
