Ford recalls 1.48 million F-150 pickups in North America over transmissions

Ford said that on some trucks of the 2011-2013 model year with a six-speed automatic transmission, an unintended shift to first gear without warning may occur, which could lead to loss of control over the car. Ford is aware of five accidents, including one report of a stroke potentially associated with this problem.
Recall 1.26 million trucks in the United States and 221,000 in Canada. Dealers will upgrade transmission control software, and the company will notify customers next month.

In March 2016, Ford has withdrawn 153,000 American Ford F-150, Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator cars for 2011-2012 due to a similar problem with downshifts. Ford spokeswoman Monique Brentley said the main reason was different from the new recall.
In December 2017, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating whether this review should be extended to almost 1.4 million cars in 2011–2013 after 123 complaints and two accidents, but there were no reports of injuries.

The agency said that an unexpected downshift "can lead to a sudden slowdown of the car without warning. It can also skid or block the rear tires, increasing the risk of a collision. ”

The investigation continues.
Ford also said it is releasing two other reviews. One of them covers 28,200 Lincoln Continental cars in North America in 2017 for door latches, which may not work due to the accumulation of silicon and may lead to the door opening while driving.

Ford said he did not know of any reports of accidents or injuries. Dealers will replace door latch assemblies in all four doors.

Ford also speaks of 4,200 Ford Mustang, Lincoln Nautilus and Lincoln Navigator 2019 models for complete instrument sets that remain empty when starting cars. Dealers will update the software. There are no reports of failures due to recall.
