Safety recall in the UAE for certain 2011-2012 Model Year Ford F-150, 2012 Model Year Expedition & Mustang, and Lincoln Navigator Vehicles equipped with a 61180 Transmission
In coordination with the Ministry of Economy - Consumer Protection Department and in line with the commitment of the Ministry of Economy to conduct an on-going review of all products in the UAE to provide the consumer with the required protection, Al Tayer Motors, the local importer -dealer of Ford and Lincoln vehicles in the UAE, and Premier Motors the official dealer for Ford and Lincoln vehicles in Abu Dhabi, announce a safety recall campaign for certain 2011-2012 Model Year Ford F-150, 2012 Model Year Expedition & Mustang, and Lincoln Navigator Vehicles equipped with a 6R80 Transmission, manufactured in the USA, for powertrain control module reprogramming.
In some of the affected vehicles, an intermittent Output Speed Sensor (OSS) failure may result in an unintended downshift into first gear. Depending on vehicle speed at the time of the downshift, an abrupt wheel speed reduction may occur which could cause the rear tires to slide or lock up until the vehicle speed slows. This condition could result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
A total of 630 vehicles are estimated to be affected in the UAE.
Al Tayer Motors /Premier Motors will contact the affected customers to inform them about this recall. The powertrain control module will be reprogrammed free of charge and every effort will be made to minimise any inconvenience caused during the short time required for the work to be carried out
