Vehicles Affected: Approximately 4,000 2015 Ford F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550 Super Duty pickup trucks built between Sept. 13, 2013, and March 31, 2014, at the Kentucky Truck Plant. All Super Dutys with the six-speed transmission are at risk (includes both engine options: the 6.2-liter gas V-8 and 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel V-8).
The Problem: A software error could cause the transmission to have a significant delay with the proper indicator light when shifting from Reverse to Drive.
The Fix: Affected Ford customers will be sent a letter asking them to contact their local Ford dealer regarding the recall. If customers experience the problem before receiving the letter, they should contact their local dealer. Ford also said it learned of the problem at the assembly plant and, to date, was not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.
