DEARBORN, MI. (NBC) -- Ford motor company has issued a safety alert for two of its 2020 SUVs.

The automaker is recalling select 2020 Ford Explorer vehicles and Lincoln aviators.

The recall involves nearly 14,000 vehicles in the U.S. that are mostly in dealership inventories.

Ford says the vehicles may be missing the manual park release cover that keeps the vehicles from moving while parked.

Additionally, the instrument cluster on the recalled vehicles may still be in factory mode, which disables warning alerts and chimes, and doesn't display the gear positions.

Ford is aware of one report of an accident occurring during vehicle transport, which only resulted in vehicle damage.

Dealerships will repair the issues before delivery to customers.
