(Corrects model year to 2011-2013 from 2001-2013)

(Reuters) - on Wednesday said it was recalling about 1.48 million in due to a transmission issue that could increase the risk of a crash.

Ford said select 2011-2013 model year trucks with six-speed could experience an unintended downshift into first gear without warning, which could result in the loss of vehicle control. Ford is aware of five accidents, including one report of whiplash potentially related to the issue.
