F-150 Recalled for Suddenly Dropping Into 1st Gear

Ford is recalling the 2011-2013 F-150 because it can suddenly downshift, causing whiplash and at least five crashes. The 6-speed transmission is dropping into 1st gear due to a communication breakdown between the transmission output speed sensor and the powertrain control module (PCM). This can happen at any speed and without warning. Ford believes they can fix the issue with an update to the PCM software.

Hmm, where have we heard that before?
