adaptive cruise control will emergency brake for no reason

My 2016 Ford F150 Platinum truck when in Adaptive Cruise Control mode will identify a phantom truck in front of vehicle and will throw the truck into go into an emergency stop. This occurs when passing a "shiny" truck in the lane to your right. The problem seems identical to the issues with 2015 Ford F150's that triggered a full recall of all Ford trucks with Adaptive Cruise Control. My truck is at the dealership 8/12/16 and they claim there is nothing wrong with Adaptive Cruise Control and the updates from the 2015 recall had already been made to my vehicle. The service manager, however, states his 2016 truck does the same thing. I can see on this website that at least one other 2016 F150 owner is dealing with the same adaptive cruise control issue. I am at a loss to understand how Ford, with all the recall non-sense the auto industry has seen recently, can sell trucks with a known problem that could cause a catastrophic accident. The stated problem with the adaptive cruise control has occurred 8 times over 5,000 miles of freeway driving. I travel at 70+MPH along I-5 every day with cars and trucks going equally as fast or faster. Imagine the devastation that could be triggered by an F150 slamming on the brakes, for no reason, in the fast lane. This is obviously a known problem by Ford but they have done nothing to notify 2016 Ford truck owners of the problem. I am truly regretting my decision to trust that Ford had turned the corner on customer care. If you are reading this report and you drive on the freeways, I strongly suggest you not drive behind 2016 F150 Platinum edition never know when they are going to slam on the brakes.
