2013-ford-f-150-promo

They include 1.5 million of its popular F-150 pickup trucks with a transmission flaw that could cause the vehicles to downshift to first gear with no warning.

Ford has launched three recalls for vehicles sold in the United States market including the 2011-2013 F-150, 2017-2019 Lincoln Continental, and the 2019 Mustang, Lincoln Nautilus and Navigator.

The company says a glitch in sending a signal from the transmission speed sensor is the cause.

Ford said that it is aware of five accidents related to the issue. Dealers will update the powertrain control software and the company will notify customers next month.

A row of new Ford F-150 pickup trucks are parked for sale at a Ford dealer in the Denver suburb of Broomfield, Colorado, U.S., April 14, 2011. Certain vehicles may have an intermittently functioning door latch motor due to the buildup of silicon contamination; as a result, the door latch may not fully engage.

Along with the recall on the F-150, Ford also announced a safety recall for select 2017-19 Lincoln Continental vehicles for door latches that may not engage. So far, Ford says it has not heard of any accidents or injuries from this defect.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from this condition. The recall affects more than 28,000 vehicles in North America.

According to News4Jax sister station WDIV in Detroit, Ford has issued two other recalls affecting just over 31,000 vehicles.

Ford is issuing a flurry of recalls over safety issues. Dealers will replace the door latch assemblies in all four doors. Dealers will update the software. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19C03.
