    The good news? The problem only happens when backing up!! LOL


    701,114 vehicles recalled on top of previous recalls? this company’s quality control reminds me of the transmission problems they had during the seventies.

    I’ve complained repeatedly to the dealership about it.. I have a 2020 F-150 and the problem is interment glad they finally issued a recall notice on it.

    They are aware of accidents, I reported mine!! Is Ford now covering up accidents they are responsible for??? Looks like it to me! I’m thinking an attorney and massive lawsuit is in order!

      Lawsuit? Only the lawyers might make money if allowed to go to court. Consumers, maybe a free oil change.
