Ford recalls 202000 F-150s, cars, and SUVs to fix transmission – CNBC
Ford is recalling nearly 202,000 pickup trucks, SUVs and cars in North America because the automatic transmissions can suddenly downshift to first gear.
The company also said Wednesday that it’s recalling more than 81,000 Explorer SUVs to fix a rear suspension problem.
The transmission recall covers the 2011 and 2012 F-150 and the 2012 Expedition, Mustang and Lincoln Navigator. Ford says a software problem in a speed sensor can force the vehicles into a downshift. The problem has caused three crashes but no injuries.
