Ford Issues Three Recalls
Feb. 14, 2019—Ford Motor Company is issuing two recalls and a safety compliance recall in North America.
Ford is issuing a safety recall on select 2011-13 Ford F-150 vehicles with 6-speed automatic transmission that may experience an intermittent loss of the transmission output speed sensor signal to the powertrain control module, potentially resulting in a temporary, unintended downshift into first gear. Depending on vehicle speed, a downshift to first gear without warning could result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
The company is aware of five reports of accidents, including one report of “whiplash” potentially related to the condition of intermittent loss of the transmission output speed sensor signal.
Ford is also issuing a safety recall for select 2017-19 Lincoln Continental vehicles for a door latch concern. 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.
Additionally, Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall for select 2019 Ford Mustang, Lincoln Nautilus and Lincoln Navigator vehicles for instrument panel cluster assemblies that may be blank upon vehicle startup.
