Automobiles Impacted: About 355 Buick Regal, LaCrosse and Verano sedans and Enclave crossovers Chevrolet Malibu and Cruze sedans and Traverse crossovers and GMC Acadia crossovers — all 2014 versions outfitted with automatic transmissions.
The Dilemma: The transmission shift cable adjuster could disengage from the transmission shift lever, which could avoid the driver from shifting gear positions, and the indicated shift position may possibly not signify the actual gear place. If disengagement takes place while the car is in movement, when the driver goes to quit and park the automobile, the driver could be able to shift the lever to the “Park” place, but the automobile transmission might not be in the appropriate gear position if this occurs, the motor vehicle could roll away, growing the risk of injury to occupants and bystanders.
The Fix: GM will notify owners starting late this month, and dealers will examine and substitute any affected transmission shift cable adjusters for free.
What Owners Should Do: Chevrolet owners can phone 800-222-1020, Buick owners 800-521-7300 and GMC owners 800-462-8782, or owners can contact the National Highway Traffic Security Administration’;s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for far more info.
