Buick Encore RecallsIgnition Key May Be Removed Without Transmission Lever Shifted To Park
The ignition key may be able to be removed from the ignition switch without having the transmission shift lever securely in the park position. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the key cylinder lock housing free of charge to resolve the concern.
The tire placards on the vehicle do not list proper wheel rim size. General Motors will send owners of affected vehicles a corrected label free of charge, and the owner can install on their own or seek dealers assistance for installation.
The electric power steering system may fail, due to the steering column housing contacting and wearing on the power steering printed circuit board. Dealers will inspect and replace the steering column as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
