Seriously? You didn't receive a recall notice for this very issue? It's not the transmission, it's the rear differential. Likely your pin broke as per the recall. Get it to your dealer for a free fix. In the meantime, use your E-brake every time you stop and park.I have a 2021 Explorer Limited with :
I have had a few odd issues with the shifting dial not being in the right gear, but recently it got worse. I pulled into a parking lot, parked the car, and started getting out. The car started driving forward. We stopped the car when my passenger reached under to hit the brake pedal. We couldn't put it into gear - any gear - until we used the key fob to "restart" it.

There is the rollaway recall, but I don’t think my transmission “broke” it is still drivable.
I was told by a friend that his Lincoln had a recall for this issue a few years back, but wondering if anyone has heard of the issue with 2021 Explorers?
The shift dial is a terrible design.
