RepairPal Expert Overview on July 30, 2008

The transmission is operated and controlled by software within an on board computer called the transmission control module. This software may be faulty and cause damage to the transmission. This may cause the transmission to do into first gear at highway speeds, or the engine may shut down.

We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall, which may change to high priority if transmission shifting seems erratic. Please contact your General Motors dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.

The frame of the vehicle is made up of rails that are fastened together. These frame rails are manufactured to a certain length, width, and height. On some vehicles, the frame may be too wide, which will cause it to touch the fuel tank. This can cause a fuel leak.
