Ford Motor Co. said Tuesday it will recall about 7,300 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid vehicles to reprogram the powertrain control module to prevent the vehicles from rolling away after being shifted out of park, reports the Detroit News.
The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is a competitor to the Lexus HS 250h and Lexus ES Hybrid.
The automaker has been producing the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid since the 2011 model year, after unveiling it at the New York International Auto Show. It was the first hybrid-electric vehicle produced under the Lincoln brand. It was redesigned for the 2013 model year.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rated the 2013 MKZ Hybrid at 45 mpg combined.
