2017 Ford F-150: Recall Alert

F-150_10_speed_recall

By Patrick Masterson

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 12,000 model-year 2017 Ford F-150 pickup trucks equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions and manufactured at Michigan's Dearborn Truck Plant from Aug. 23, 2016, to July 2, 2017, and Missouri's Kansas City Assembly Plant from Sept. 16, 2016, to Aug. 9, 2017

The Problem: The pin attaching the transmission shift linkage to the transmission may come out. If this happens, movement of the shift lever will not change the transmission gear regardless of the position of the shift lever. The shifter indicator also could display inaccurate information, and the key could be removed even if the vehicle is not in Park, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will remove the roll pin and replace it with an updated part for free. Owners should ensure the parking brake is applied whenever the vehicle is parked before getting the repair.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 for more information.

WHEN NOTHING LESS THAN THE MOST DEPENDABLE WILL DO
Strong, capable and built to stand the test of time. When you need to get things done, you want a Silverado — the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickups on the road.†

Yep,,,like GM never has a recall!!!!

Lol wow.

And yet the transit is the headline, if PUTC had any moral compass the F150 would be...

Those bashing realize this transmission was co-developed with GM right?

Wow the desperation of a Ford fan.... Considering Ford just recalled 1.3 MILLION ( https://www.cnbc.com/2017/10/18/ford-to-recall-about-1-point-3-million-trucks-in-north-america-for-door-latch-fix.html ) trash F-150's for door latches that could fail and allow passengers to fly out of the truck at high speed, I'd say that GM's recall of 690k trucks for a software update is nothing by comparison. Especially since it's a software fix for a power steering glitch that happens at less than 5 MPH.

Hmm... door latches that fail and allow the door to fly open at high speed or a steering software glitch that only occurs at extremely slow parking lot speeds....

Number of vehicles affected: 4,789 vehicles (United States figure).

LOL wow earth shattering. Especially compared to the two F-150 recalls, each for 12,000+ trucks. Keep trying bud. Still waiting for Ford to recall all the 2015-2017 F-150's for brake failures. They recalled the 2013-14 trucks but still haven't recalled the 2015+ trucks with the exact same parts and the exact same brake failure....

Wow Ford fans got all upset when people said GM helped develop it because in actuality the agreement was that Ford lead the development of the 10-speed and GM lead development of the 9-speed transverse transmission. Once each completed development of their transmission, they agreed to share the design with each other.

But hey, if it makes you feel better, you can try to spread blame to GM too. They should have known Ford would manage to screw it up like always LOL.

Lol. Show me how GM fans make fun of Ford's every time there's recall but yeah I don't see those same ones on here and GM has a recall Plus for all you that don't know GM had a recall of over 10 million trucks with their exploding gas tanks they're called the saddlebag gas tanks and Chevy knew they would explode before they even installed them. Just like they knew about the 13 million plus ignitions they were faulty. 😀

Wow you either are either completely new to this website or are a 100% Ford fan girl. Ford fangirl have NEVER r3sisted an opportunity to trash GM or Ram when they have issued a recall. Just go back and look and you'll see it here. Ford fans lucked out in the past because Ford is LEGENDARY for avoiding voluntary safety recalls more than any other manufacturer.

You can talk about the widespread tanks until you're blue in the face. The fact of the matter is that the number of well-known safety defects in Fotd vehicles is so HUGE that unless one of Ford's competitors makes a vehicle out of 100% explosives, they'll never beat Ford when it comes to roll I threaten traps LOL

My god the comments... sounds like romper room. GM Chevy, Ford, Toyota, etc... they're all man made machines subject to failure. Get over it! Buy what you like and drive it till the wheels fall off!

That's what happens when GM helps you design something.

All you people bitching about recalls and which one had more in this that and the other you fools are stupid if you pay 40 plus $3,000 for any vehicle it's got no refrigerator it's got no shower dumb asses

All Chevy's are is a recall truck, my nephews 1500 has 6. Now talk smack Chevy boys. Chevy and ford designed the 10 speed automatic transmission.

So after the 2017 f150 recall putc put the transit above it in the headline.. then they added the 2018 f150... Below the transit... if it was a recall of 1 Silverado it would be in the headlines for several days... No bias here....

Go ahead Ford fan's , keep defending your precious Ford junk.
Quality Is Job None. LOL

Is this the goal at Ford Again

Hey Bobby

My Chevy has almost 100k miles on it. Trouble free driving. One recall and one trouble light (fixed under warranty) in almost 10 years.

How's that for Smack?

Nice that Tundra& Titan never have recalls. Always Ram,Ford,& Chevy/Gmc

Maybe GM is getting out all the bugs out of the "ford led" 10 speed joint venture before they release it to the masses.

2014 Chevy had a tranny recall in the 500k range.

Recall Alert: 2014-2015 4x4 Chevrolet Silverado 1500s, GMC Sierra 1500s, and 2015 Chevy and GMC Full-Size SUVs

Vehicles Affected: About 400,000 model-year 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks as well as model-year 2015 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL full-size SUVs with four-wheel-drive systems

The Problem: A software glitch in the electronically controlled transfer case, which is responsible for controlling the four-wheel-drive system, can slip into neutral without any input from drivers while parked or in motion.

Recall Alert: 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500
Posted by Mark Williams | March 29, 2014

General Motors will recall almost 500,000 late model pickup trucks and large sport-utility vehicles to fix a potential oil leak.

The truck recall includes 490,200 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups, and 2015 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

GM said it is aware of three fires and no injuries linked to the recall.

For those who thinks GM is immune to trans recalls.

I like how when their is a Ford recall, it is quickly moved down with other news to save Ford's bias coverage on here...

F- flawed
O- or
R- recalled
D- daily

When is Ford going to learn to stop using cheap China junk parts.

Shut up Chevy has never manufactured a truck just a grocery getter...

GM got singled out for the sidesaddle tanks because they were sold a TON of 3rd gen Chevy C/K trucks. In reality, fuel tank ruptures were coming throughout the auto industry. At the same time GM was building trucks with side saddle fuel tanks, Ford was building trucks with fuel tanks inside the cab, UNDER THE SEATS!

Not to mention that during this same period of time, Ford sold over 23 million vehicles with defective transmissions that popped out of park and would run their customers over. By 1980, the NHTSA had received 23,000 complaints about Ford transmissions, including reports of 6,000 accidents, 1,710 injuries, and 98 fatalities–primarily the young and old.

Ford was also busy covering up many other defects in the 80's, including defective ignition switches that would short out and cause fires, ignition modules that were mounted in an area that Ford knew could cause failure due to excessive heat leading to a deadly stall at high speeds, Bronco II's that had serious roll-over issues ( Ford continued to ignore all the deaths, using the same dangerous platform for the famous Ford Explorer later on), etc. I could keep going if you wish...

How Ford really handles safety defects:

https://www.autosafety.org/ford-cited-holding-key-evidence/

"In March 2003, a Summit County, Ohio, probate court found Ford had committed "fraud" and vacated a 15-year-old personal injury settlement in a Bronco II rollover case. The court found Ford had concealed a doctor’s report concerning brain damage to a 2-year-old child injured in the accident. The family had accepted a $10,000 cash settlement."

"A state district court judge in Zapata County, Texas, fined Ford $44,000 in February for failing to produce documents that exposed engineering and manufacturing defects potentially affecting 4.1 million vehicles sold between 1997 and 2000. The vehicles include the F-150 and F-250 pickups and the Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs."

"The Ford documents describe a company investigation that discovered the door handles had been manufactured with weak springs, allowing door latches to potentially fly open in crashes.

Ford engineers pinpointed the problem in March 2000 and concluded it was a safety issue and recommended a recall, the documents show. The company estimated the recall would have cost up to $527 million. Ford executives initially approved a recall, the documents show, before determining that the handles could pass a rarely used alternative safety test."

recalled recalled recalled all day.. this why you don't buy a ford

These recalls are very suspicious to me.... approx. 12,000 vehicles? That's like one day of sales.....

I HAD A 2016 SILVERADO UNTIL 2 FUEL PUMPS BY 3500 MILES. GOOD BYE CHEVY HELLO 2017 F150.

LOL sounds like you need a better dealer service center. There are millions of those engines on the road and fuel pump failures are no more common than they are on the Ford Ecoboost and Duratec engines.

Funny I dumped my 2016 F-150 after a year. the transmission had to be fixed at 2k miles because of faulty solenoids. Then the 2.7 EcoBoost started burning oil and the low oil pressure warning would come on whenever I would get on it to pass people. They replaced the engine but I've seen enough engine problems with Ford over the last 15 years. I don't want to be stuck with another Ford headache after my 2012 Ecoboost started having timing chain problems and misfires. Picked up a 2017 Sierra 6.2 for 41k at Laura 👍

approx. 12,000 vehicles? That's like one day of sales. Posted by: 2.7EcoBoostRoost | Oct 26, 2017

Twelve thousand sales per day? On what planet?

That would work out to over 300k sales per month. Good try, no cigar.

For those who thinks GM is immune to trans recalls.

No one said that.

But the amount of Ford fan boy deflection going on in here does seem to be an epidemic....
