Ford Recalls 1.5M Trucks That Can Downshift Unexpectedly

Ford Motor Company is recalling almost 1.5 million trucks that can  downshift into first gear  without warning.  The affected vehicles include 2011-2013 Ford F-150 trucks with 6-speed automatic transmission.

Ford said depending on the vehicle's speed, the sudden drop in gears could "result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash."  Ford said it's aware of five reports of accidents, including one that may have resulted in whiplash.

Dealers can update some software in affected vehicles, as a way to fix the problem.  NBC News reports that Ford's F-series truck is America's  best-selling vehicle .  This is just the latest in a  string of recalls  for the car manufacturer.

Back in December, Ford recalled almost 900,000 F-150 and Super Duty models over possible fire concerns.

And in September, the company recalled almost two million F-150s because of a seatbelt defect.
