RepairPal Expert Overview:

On vehicles equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission, the tabs on the transmission shift cable end may fracture and separate. If this were to occur, the shift lever and the actual position of the transmission gear may not match. The driver would be able to move the shifter to "Park" and remove the ignition key, but the transmission gear may not be in "Park." The vehicle may not be able to be restarted and the vehicle could roll away after the driver has exited the vehicle, resulting in a possible crash without prior warning. Dealers will install a retainer over the cable end or replace the shift cable as necessary. The General Motors recall number 12106.
