It seems like Ford can’t escape quality issues, and now the 2023 Ford F-150 and Ford Bronco have a stop-sale and a recall due to a transmission problem. The issue is related to the 10-speed automatic transmission. 

According to MotorTrend, all of the fuss is related to a $.10 part. A loose bolt could reach the parking pawl and get in the way. It prevents the vehicle from not moving while in park. 

As a result, Ford Bronco and F-150 models might move while placed in park. It’s like the vehicles get placed in neutral instead. 

The inability to secure the park position may result in a rollaway, increasing the risk of injuries or accidents. 

On a positive note, Ford believes that most of the affected vehicles haven’t been delivered yet. But the stip-sale could lead to delays. It’s unclear when deliveries will resume. Also, Ford doesn’t have a solution for this issue yet. 

If your vehicle is at risk, then replacement parts and instructions will arrive in the second quarter of 2023. The Broncos covered by this recall were built between November 14, 2022, and January 12, 2023. 

The F-150s at risk were built between November 09, 2022, and January 13, 2023, in Dearborn, Michigan. Also, models built between November 13, 2022, and January 12, 2023, in Kansas may be impacted. 

You can visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) site and enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to see if your vehicle is under recall. 

How many recalls does the F-150 have? 

The 2023 – 2022 Ford F-150 has quite the list of recalls. The 2023 model has two recalls already. One is related to the transmission problem, and the other is because the airbags may not deploy as intended. 

To make matters worse, the 2022 F-150 has 10 recalls, including the powertrain issue. The airbags may break during deployment and send fragments through the cabin, inoperative windshield wipers might reduce visibility, and flickering lights are a problem. 

Plus, the incorrect lug nuts may allow the tires to come off, a fractured driveshaft could result in the loss of power, ow tire pressure impacts control, damaged wiring makes the steering inoperative, and there could be a loss of trailer brake functionality. 

What are the 2022 – 2023 Ford Bronco recalls?

The 2023 Ford Bronco has the one recall for the powertrain parking problem. The 2022 Ford Bronco has five recalls. One is related to the same powertrain issue. Also, a side airbag sensor may fail, resulting in unintentional deployment. 

One electrical problem may cause the rearview camera to be stuck in the reverse view, the windshield may separate from the frame, and the child locks could be inoperable. 

These recalls seem to have a broad mix of electrical and mechanical issues, but hopefully, they don’t take much time to fix. Stay tuned for the latest updates about how Ford plans to solve the transmission problem.
