Ford to Resume Production at Seven Plants

DEARBORN, Mich., April 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) on Monday will resume building vehicles at seven assembly plants that were shut down for a day due to a parts issue that has been resolved.

Working quickly with its supplier partner, Ford resolved the issue on the clutch mechanism in its 4R70/75 4-speed, rear-wheel-drive automatic transmission. The transmission is used in the Ford F-150, Expedition, E- Series and Lincoln Town Car. The vehicles are built at Ford's Dearborn Truck, Michigan Truck, Norfolk Assembly, Ohio Assembly, Wixom Assembly, Kansas City Assembly and Cuautitlan Assembly plants.

Ford is confident that no affected vehicles reached customer hands, as the company worked to ensure the part met its quality standards and specifications.

The day of lost vehicle production will be made up.
