DETROIT (AP) — Ford is recalling nearly 202,000 pickup trucks, SUVs and cars in North America because the automatic transmissions can suddenly downshift to first gear.
The recall covers the 2011 and 2012 F-150 and the 2012 Expedition, Mustang and Lincoln Navigator. Ford says a speed sensor can force vehicles into a downshift.
The company says the problem has caused three crashes but no injuries.
Dealers will inspect the sensors. If they find no trouble codes, they’ll update software. If trouble codes are present they’ll replace parts.
The company also is recalling over 81,000 Explorer SUVs to fix a rear suspension problem that can cause loss of steering control. That recall covers SUVs from 2014 and 2015. Suspension links could fracture due to poor welds.
Dealers will replace the links.
