Ford F-150 Recalled Because Transmissions Can Suddenly Slip Into Neutral Causing Accidents
According to an article published on ConsumerReports.org, Ford has announced a recall of more than 47,000 2021 model year F-150 pickup trucks. The 2021 F-150 pickup trucks were recalled due to a transmission problem. The affected pickup trucks' transmissions can slip into neutral leading to truck accidents. The recalled trucks include certain 2021 Ford F-150 pickup trucks manufactured between July 28, 2021, and Dec. 20, 2021.
The defect involves the transmission software can erroneously sense that the pickup trucks' transmission fluid pressure is too low and then shifts into Neutral. When transmission fluid pressure is too low, this sequence of events would help to protect the transmission and allow the driver enough time to pull the truck over.
Ford dealerships will repair the recalled trucks by updating the transmission software at no charge. Ford is contacting the owners of affected pickup trucks by mail starting May 2, 2022. The NHTSA's recall campaign number is 22V188. Ford’s internal recall number is 22S15.
To see if your pickup truck or other vehicle has an open recall, visit the NHTSA’s website to search your vehicle to find any open recalls that need to be handled.
