Ford recall spans 200000 vehicles in North America

Ford recall spans 200000 vehicles in North America

First of all, approximately 201,900 2011-2012 Ford F-150 and 2012 Ford Expedition, Ford Mustang and Lincoln Navigator vehicles (including 17,900 in Canada) may have an issue with the output speed sensor on the 6R80 transmission lead frame.

Ford has recalled the hugely popular F-150 pickup trucks (2011 and 2012) because of a software glitch that can cause the auto to suddenly shift down into first gear. The problem has caused three crashes but no injuries. Dealers will inspect the powertrain control module for diagnostic trouble codes tied to the issue.

In a second safety recall, Ford is recalling about 81,000 model year 2014-2015 Ford Explorers and Police Interceptors to replace rear suspension toe links in certain vehicles. That's the case this week, as Ford has issued five separate recalls, covering a wide variety of vehicles, numbering some 300,000 in total. Ford says poor weld quality could cause the left and right rear suspension toe links to crack.

Dealers will replace the rear links and align the rear suspension at no cost.

Gilbert said owners of all vehicles included in these recalls will recall notices in the mail.

Ford will inspect affected tires for sidewall damage and replace them as necessary.

The company is not aware of any accidents or injuries linked to the issue. Ford said the problem doesn't affect first-stage deployment and is not related to the recalls of airbags made by Takata Corp. A total of 2,288 trucks in the USA, 271 in Canada, and 37 in Mexico are affected. Dealers will replace the driver-side airbag module. Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue. Affected vehicles include 39 vehicles in the United States, built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant, March 10, 2016 through March 16, 2016. Some of the cars could have a seat track that was improperly welded, leading to reduced seat track strength, Ford said.
