Today brings us news that General Motors is recalling 426,240 midsize sedans because of a faulty shift cable risk. That means that when the car is put into Park, the cable may fail, and the vehicle could roll away as if it were in neutral. According to the recall itself, “if the tabs were to fracture and separate, the shift lever and the actual position of the transmission gear may not match.”
The cars involved in the recall are 2008-2010 Chevy Malibus, Pontiac G6s, and 2007-2010 Saturn Auras equipped with the four speed automatic transmissions. GM will begin notifying owners soon, where they can drive to their local dealership and have the issue fixed, free of charge.
