Ford has announced a safety recall on 2020 Rangers. Specifically, 2020 Ford Rangers built at the Michigan Assembly Plant from Feb. 28 to March 18, 2020 with the 10-speed automatic transmission.

The issue seems to be that a "clip that locks the gearshift cable to the transmission may not be fully seated. Which means drivers could be in a different gear than what they picked.

In affected vehicles, a clip that locks the gearshift cable to the transmission may not be fully seated. Over time, a partially seated clip may allow the transmission to be in a gear state different from the gearshift position selected by the driver. This could allow the driver to move the shifter to Park and remove the ignition key, without the transmission gear actually being in Park. If the parking brake is not applied in those cases, the vehicle could move unintentionally, increasing the risk of injury or crash.

The same issue is also affecting F-150s and Explorers.

Here's the full release from Ford:
