A Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) recall has been issued in 2017 that involves 440,000 additional vehicles. But the automaker is not aware of collisions or injuries associated with this issue. Driving at speeds over 75 miles per hour can result in a resonance frequency that can facture the transmission along with driveline components. A total of 509 trucks are affected in the United States.
