  • Ford announces three recalls, one of which covers 1.5 million pickup trucks

Vehicles recalled: Certain 2011-13 Ford F-150 trucks manufactured at Ford's Dearborn, Mich., assembly plant from April 28, 2010, through October 28, 2013, and at its Kansas City, Mo., assembly plant from May 18, 2010, through November 18, 2013.

That recall covers certain 2011-2013 model F-150 trucks. Depending on vehicle speed, a downshift to first gear without warning could result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Consumers reported five accidents related to the problem, Ford said in a news release. Dealers will update the powertrain control software and the company will notify customers next month.

The recall covers 1.26 million trucks in the United States and 221,000 in Canada.

According to Ford, certain vehicles may have an "intermittently functioning door latch motor due to the buildup of silicon contamination", resulting in the latch not being able to fully engage.

Finally, Ford also issued a safety compliance recall on certain 2019 Ford Mustangs, Lincoln Nautiuses and Lincoln Navigators, as some drivers have reported that the instrument panels on the auto could be blank on starting.

Ford said it was not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries.

The company said it is now unaware of any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from the condition. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S03. The recall affects more than 28,000 vehicles in North America.

As remedy, Ford service people will replace all four door latch assemblies. The recall reference number is 19C03. The instrument panel software will be updated.
