Ford Issues Recall on Faulty TransmissionPosted by: Xavier Kwan onMay 6th, 2016
Ford will be issuing a recall on 201,900 vehicles. The issue has been identified as a faulty output speed sensor on the 6R80 transmission which could force shift the transmission into first gear. If the vehicle is travelling at high speeds, this could result in the rear wheels locking up or losing traction and could result in an accident.
Specific vehicles that are impacted include the 2011-2012 F-150, 2012 Expedition, 2012 Mustang, and 2012 Lincoln Navigator. There are 84,000 cars in the United States and 17,900 in Canada. As or right now, no injuries have been liked to this recall, however, three accidents have been related to the issue.
Beginning on May 23, Ford dealers will start contacting customers. If your vehicle is impacted by the recall, bring the car into your local dealership and they will replace the faulty speed sensor and also replace the lead transmission frame.
