Ford Truck Recall Notice

Consumer law is one of my practice areas as a Billings attorney, so I always want to make you aware of any recalls or product issues that might effect your health and safety.

There has been another vehicle recall notice. This notice affects 2011-2012 Ford F150, Expedition, Mustang and Lincoln Navigators. There is some question concerning the vehicles transmission systems. Specifically, the auto may not go into reverse when you move the gear shift to that selection. There have been reports the interior sensor occasionally will fail to indicate when you are in reverse.

Ford will begin notification of affected owners immediately and expects to begin repair by June 26. There have been no reports of personal injuries associated with this condition. If you have any questions about whether your auto is part of the recall, contacting your local Ford or Lincoln dealer may be your best course of action.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has a hotline number you can call, 1-888-327-4236. Products with defects that compromise your safety is unacceptable. Montana has laws that differ in product liability situations.

There’s also a free book you can get from the website focused on Montana law as it relates to personal injury cases.  Pick up a copy of “Your Rights” today by clicking on the title link.
