Some 2012 F-150 vehicles equipped with a 5.0L engine may exhibit a delayed harsh downshift or an abrupt shift event when quickly releasing the throttle pedal after a brief hard acceleration. Other concerns may be a harsh 1-2, 2-3 or 3-4 upshift while driving.
Reprogram the powertrain control module (PCM) to the latest calibration using IDS release 83.01 and higher. Calibration files may also be obtained at www.motorcraft.com.
