Ford Motor Co. is recalling 1,170 2015 model-year Ford Transit dual-rear-wheel vans in the U.S. to replace the rear axle shafts.

In these vehicles, Ford said, the rear axle shafts could fracture and cause a loss of motive power without warning while driving. Additionally, the problem may lead to unintended movement when the van is in “park” without the parking brake engaged.

Ford said, however, it isn’t aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

The recall covers 2015 Ford Transit dual-rear-wheel vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant from May 1 through June 26 of this year.

There are a total of 1,265 vehicles that might be affected in North America, including the 1,170 in the U.S. and federalized territories, and 95 in Canada.

Ford dealers will replace both rear axle shafts at no cost to the customer.
