Ford Motor Company is recalling 12,429 model year 2018 F-150s equipped with a 3.3L engine, a 6-speed transmission and a column mounted shift lever.
Quickly moving the shift lever from Park to Drive may cause a loss of gear indication on the instrument cluster display, and a momentary selection of an unintended gear, such as Reverse or Neutral before the vehicle achieves Drive function.
Unidentified or unintended gear selection may cause the vehicle to move in a way that was not intended by the driver, increasing the risk of crash or injury.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the powertrain control module, free of charge.
The recall was expected to begin November 20, 2017.
Owners may contact Ford Customer Service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 17S35.
