The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) may get Ford to widen a recall for vehicles with faulty transmissions.
In 2016, the car manufacturer recalled 153,000 vehicles as their automatic transmissions could unexpectedly shift into first gear. Vehicles impacted included select F-150, Expedition, Lincoln Navigator, and Ford Mustang models.
The Detroit Free Press reports that the NHTSA is now investigating whether the recall should have in fact included up to 1.4 million F-150s, Navigators, and Expeditions from the 2011, 2012, and 2013 model years.
According to the NHTSA, a number of owners have complained, stating that Ford’s repairs didn’t work.
Ford says it is cooperating with the investigation.
