What are the defects?
There is a possibility that an intermittent Output Shaft Speed Sensor failure may result in an unintended downshift into first gear.
What are the hazards?
If the failure occurs while the vehicle is in use, it could cause an abrupt wheel speed reduction. This may cause the rear tyres to slide or lock up until the vehicle speed slows, which could result in a loss of vehicle control.
What should consumers do?
Until the Safety Recall Service is completed it is recommended that the vehicle be driven with caution and at moderate speed.
Consumers will be contacted by direct mail. Consumers should contact their local Ford dealer to arrange for an inspection and repair.
