Ford is recalling 1.3 Million of their F-150 pickup trucks due to a transmission issue.

The problem is happening with trucks built from 2011 to 2013 with six speed automatic transmissions.

The problem is that the truck will suddenly downshift while driving. This can cause a sudden loss of speed without any notice. According to Consumer Reports, the issue has caused at least five accidents to date.

The good news is that the fix is just a software update that won't cost you anything, and shouldnt take very long to put in place.

You can call Ford Customer Service at 866-436-7332 to get information about getting your truck fixed.
