My 2017 Fusion Hybrid has intelligent access and push-button start. Sometimes (rarely), after I start the car and put it into drive or reverse, the transmission automatically shifts itself back into park. One time it even did that twice in a row. The third time it stayed in drive. I haven't taken it into the dealership because it happens so rarely. Is this something to be concerned about? What could be causing this behavior?

I've not driven a 2017. With the new method of shifting the transmission is it possible that when the car is in reverse you are turning to look over your shoulder and lifting up off of the seat.making the car think you have left the car. Do you have your seat belt fastened when this happens?
My other car requires the seat belt fastened and the seat sensor activated when in reverse. If both conditions are not true the car slams into park.

It is possible. I remember being in a rush to get going whenever it happened. I never thought the position of the seat could be related to the problem. Maybe the sensor that determines the position of the seat is borderline. Thanks for the reply.
