Additional information:

Among the 40 recalls the NHTSA has announced this November comes news of the following:

Ford Motor Company (“Ford”) has recalled an estimated 12,429 model year 2018 F-150 Trucks equipped with a 3.3L engine, a 6-speed transmission and a column mounted shift lever. Quickly moving the shift lever from Park to Drive may cause a loss of gear indication on the instrument cluster display and a momentary selection of an unintended gear, such as Reverse or Neutral before the vehicle achieves Drive function.

According to the NHTSA, unidentified or unintended gear selection may cause the vehicle to move in a way that was not intended by the driver, increasing the risk of crash or injury.

What to do next? Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will reprogram the powertrain control module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 20, 2017. Owners may contact Ford Customer Service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 17S35.
