The Ford F-150 and a few other Ford models were recalled back in 2016 due to the faulty automatic transmission. Although Ford has already issued a recall then and has already fixed the vehicles that were affected, it looks like it might not be over yet.
According to the latest report, federal regulators are investigating on whether Ford should recall another 1.4 million vehicles for the same reason. It is said that some vehicle owners continue to experience the same issue after the last recall and that some owner who already had their vehicle repaired found that the repair did not work.
The issue was that the automatic transmission would sometimes shift itself into the first gear causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle. Models that were affected by the recall back in 2016 were the 2011 and 2012 Ford F-150, Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator and Ford Mustang.
We do not know what the outcome of the investigation will be but let’s hope this does not lead to another major recall from Ford.
