Ford Motor Co revealed on Wednesday that it is recalling 270,000 Ford Fusion cars in North America. The reason is quite concerning.

The cars could just roll away.

The automaker said the recall covers Fusion cars from the 2013 through 2016 model year that have a shifter cable that may detach from the transmission. This allows a driver to remove the ignition key when the vehicle is not in park.

Ford is aware of three reports of property damage and one injury report related to the issue. Ford said owners should always use the parking brake.

Fusion owners will be notified when a fix is available.
