Lincoln issued a recall for certain 2013 and 2014 model-year MKZ Hybrid vehicles. The problem is a faulty sensor in the transmission that can result in the sensor thinking the car is in neutral even when it's in park. This allows the driver the shift without having to press on the brake pedal, which violates a federal regulation that all new vehicles must comply with.

The affected vehicles are built between April 26th, 2012 and September 24th, 2013 and should count about 7,100 units in the US and 170 in Canada.

7,100, is that a lot of MKZs? It doesn't seem like the biggest recall and I bet that there haven't been that many people who have even noticed the problem. I think its less of a real safety threat and more because Lincoln has to make sure its abiding by regulations.

This is true, although im sure most have had their dealer contact them about it. Some people are just slow to react.

its nothing serious. There was a point in time where you could do this on almost anything... Its not like theres a gear lever for you to accidentally smack....
