Ford to recall some 2021 F-150 pickups because of crash threat
Ford is recalling certain 2021 F-150 pickup trucks because their transmissions may unexpectedly shift into neutral while in motion, which could cause a crash.
According to Yonkers-based Consumer Reports, the problem is due to an error in the transmission's software.
If this problem occurs, you may notice a loss of vehicle power and a wrench symbol illuminated on the dashboard.
Once the vehicle is stopped, it may automatically go into park. Ford says that turning the ignition off and on will reset the vehicle immediately.
So far there have been no related crashes or injuries, but best to get it checked out.
