Surfers Healing: Brand-New Surf-Inspired Ford Transit Van | Go Further | Ford

Ford owner Izzy Paskowitz, founder of Surfers Healing, is thrilled when he can retire his camp’s ‘98 Ford Econoline van for a brand-new custom woodie Ford Transit van.

Thanks to Galpin Ford and Ford Motor Company, a surfer-inspired custom woodie Ford Transit van was created especially for Surfers Healing camp.

With additional cargo space for surfing gear and a specially designed roof rack to transport surfboards to the beach, their new Ford Transit will help Surfers Healing continue serving kids for years to come.

By teaching kids with autism to surf, Izzy’s Surfers Healing camp has made a difference in the lives of autistic kids - and their parents. We’re proud to have played a small role in Izzy’s mission as the Ford Excursion he drives transports all the surfboards from the camp to the ocean and back. See how Izzy and Surfers Healing go further to bring awareness to autism.

From the surfer who gives special children a reason to smile, to the Ford dealer who leaves his job to fight a fire, there are people around us who go further every day. Ford salutes all owners, dealers and employees who embody the meaning of Go Further.

If you would like to recognize a Ford owner, dealer or employee who goes further in your community, submit his or her story to

  • Every 2017 Ford Fusion features new rotary gear shift dial that engages special software called Return to Park when it detects a customer’s intent to exit the car
  • Return to Park can provide drivers with extra peace of mind that their 2017 Fusion will select park, as intended, even if they forget to turn the dial to P, or accidently leave the car in another gear when parking
  • Vehicle rollaways can lead to multiple issues; a vehicle lacking driver control – even at low speeds – can be damaged or damage other vehicles, or strike people, animals or objects in its path

DEARBORNMich., Dec. 8, 2016 – Innovative Return to Park technology on the 2017 Ford Fusion uses data from the car’s extensive network of sensors to detect conditions that indicate a customer’s intent to exit the vehicle. The smart technology can provide drivers with extra peace of mind that their 2017 Fusion will select park, as intended, even if they forget to turn the dial to P, or accidently leave the car in another gear when parking.
In developing the innovative new 2017 Fusion and implementing the all-new rotary gear shift dial, Ford engineers identified an opportunity to address vehicle rollaways by designing smart software to assist the driver and reduce the potential for accidents under certain conditions.
Return to Park technology is designed to automatically shift the car into park when any of the following conditions* occur:
  • You turn the vehicle off
  • You open the driver’s door with your safety belt unlatched and the vehicle stationary
  • Your safety belt is unlatched with the driver’s door open and the vehicle stationary
“When we decided to go with the new rotary shifter for the 2017 Ford Fusion, the team sat together in a room to see what additional customer benefit we could bring to the table,” says Mark Zyskowski, Ford global e-shift systems technical expert. “We thought about what we could add without getting in the way of normal day-to-day scenarios, and all agreed a feature to help confirm park is selected when exiting the vehicle seemed really worthwhile.”
Fusion engineers worked hard to integrate the feature into normal, convenient operation for drivers. It can detect when a driver has turned the car off while moving, and will first shift into neutral until it slows below 5 mph before shifting into park automatically. The technology is designed not to operate if it detects a belted driver opens the door with the car moving to free a stuck coattail, for example, or if a driver happens to be inching into a parking space and wishes to see the lane markers. It is designed not to operate when the car is in Stay in Neutral or Neutral Tow mode.
Vehicle rollaways typically occur when drivers exit the vehicle with the engine running and the transmission not in park. A rollaway incident could result in serious injuries to a driver exiting the vehicle, or to pedestrians in the path of a rolling vehicle.
According to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study published in August, 360 people were killed in accidents involving unattended vehicles with no driver control between 2012 and 2014 – which is 19 percent of all non-occupants killed in non-traffic crashes a year. In an average year, about 2,000 people are injured in similar incidents.
How it works
The rotary gear shift dial has three different electronic modules monitoring transmission and shifter, which must all be in agreement for a command for a gear selection to be accepted. This is the same system that is capable of detecting and overriding such unintended scenarios as shifting into reverse while driving at speeds above 5 mph.
The all-new rotary gear shift dial with Return to Park is a standard feature for all 2017 Ford Fusion vehicles.
