The company ZF is finally issuing a recall on their transmissions which have received numerous complains of unexpectedly shifting into neutral. The recall will impact over 500,000 vehicles in the US and will expand further from there. Although many automakers use the ZF transmission, only FCA has participated in this recall campaign thus far. The problem is a result of a poorly produced crimp on the transmission’s wiring harness which ZF is issuing a software update recall to fix the problem and not doing an actual fix to the crimp.

This latest recall campaign by FCA is in addition to the ongoing ZF transmission recall that’s related to a poorly designed shifter where owners accidently leave the vehicle out of gear thinking they actually selected “Park”. That particular recall has resulted in a number of injuries and one death of actor Anton Yelchin.
