Ford F-150 Pickup Trucks Recalled for Sudden Downshifting Problem
Ford has announced a recall of 1.5 million pickup trucks in North America due to the transmissions suddenly downshifting into first gear.
The recall affects 6-speed automatic transmissions in F-150 pickup trucks under the model years 2011 through 2013. Ford’s F-Series pickup is the top-selling vehicle in the United States. The problem stems from a glitch in a signal sent from the transmission speed sensor. There are five known incidents that were reported to Ford including one that caused a whiplash injury when there was a sudden downshift.
Owners of affected Ford pickup trucks will be notified starting March 4. The vehicles in need of repair will be advised to go to their dealerships for an update to the power train control software that is supposed to fix the problem.
