Wow...can you imagine downshifting to 1st gear in a curve or on the highway? Scary.

"Ford said select 2011-2013 model year trucks with six-speed automatic transmission could experience an unintended downshift into first gear without warning, which could result in the loss of vehicle control. Ford is aware of five accidents, including one report of whiplash potentially related to the issue."

This is just a software fix to keep it from down shifting. The problem with the transmission still exists.

Half to see...I would not think its a mechanical connection, rather software issue bug per say, if where mechanical 99 percent sure it would be replaced...Till we find out more, just a guess on both sides of the issue. I'm a Chevy fan...so not sticking up for Ford because I'm a Ford guy or anything.
