202K Ford Vehicles Recalled for Faulty Transmissions

Amanda Tejuca6 months ago

Approximately 202,000 pickups, SUVs, and cars were recalled by Ford this week to fix a transmissions issue.

About the Vehicles Recall

According to the San Antonio Express-News, vehicles were recalled by Ford because the automatic transmissions can suddenly downshift to first gear. This is due to a software problem in a speed sensor that can force the vehicles into a downshift.

Ford also says that suspension links can fracture due to poor welds. Three crashes have been reported, but no injuries.

Dealers will update the software if no trouble codes are found. If they are found, then they will replace the part that houses the speed sensor.

Vehicles Affected by the Ford Transmission Recall

The following vehicles are covered by Ford’s recall:

  • 2011-2012 Ford F-150
  • 2012 Ford Expedition
  • 2012 Ford Mustang
  • 2012 Lincoln Navigator
