Ford is recalling nearly 1.5 million pickup trucks in North America because the transmissions can suddenly downshift into first gear. The recall covers F-150 trucks from the 2011 through 2013 model years with six-speed automatic transmissions.

The company says a glitch in sending a signal from the transmission speed sensor is the cause. Ford has five reports of accidents including one that caused a whiplash injury from a sudden downshifts. Owners will be notified by letter starting March 4. Dealers will update the powertrain control software to fix the problem. Ford's F-Series pickup is the top-selling vehicle in the United States.
