RepairPal Expert Overview
Vehicles equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission are being recalled because the indicated gear position of the shift lever may not match the actual gear.
As of this writing, General Motors has not yet released a notification schedule for this recall. If you are experiencing problems with the transmission shift lever, the vehicle rolling while in "Park," or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It’s helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
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.
