Ford announced Wednesday it is recalling 1.5 million of its best-selling F-150 pickup trucks due to a glitch in its transmission system that can lead to accidents. Dealers will update the powertrain control software to fix the problem.

A row of new Ford F-150 pickup trucks are parked for sale at a Ford dealer in the Denver suburb of Broomfield, Colorado, U.S., April 14, 2011.

- Ford Motor Company has issued three separate recalls in North America for various issues that affect almost 1.3 million vehicles here in the United States. The recall reference number is No. 19S07.

The company said it is now unaware of any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from the condition. The recall affects more than 28,000 vehicles in North America. One covers 28,200 2017-19 Lincoln Continental vehicles in North America for door latches that may not engage due to the buildup of silicon contamination and could result in the door opening while driving.
