Ford Mustang, F-150, Expedition, and Lincoln Navigator recalled

The Basics: Ford will recall 201,900 examples of the 2011-2012 F-150, 2012 Expedition, 2012 Mustang, and 2012 Lincoln Navigator. The affected vehicles have the 6R80 transmission. Of the total, there are 84,000 of them in the United States and 17,900 in Canada.

The Problem: The output speed sensor on the vehicle's transmission lead frame can force the gearbox to downshift into first gear. If this happens at high speed, it could cause the rear tires to slide or lock up.

Injuries/Deaths: There are no reported injuries, but Ford know of three accidents related to this problem.

The Fix: Dealers will update the powertrain control module software to eliminate the problem, and they'll also replace the transmission lead frame.

If You Own One: Ford will begin notifying affected customers by mail on May 23.
