Recall 14V803000

Transmission Shifter

Recall Details

194 vehicles are being recalled because interference between the transmission housing and the parking rod can cause the parking pawl to not fully engage. This could allow the vehicle to move unexpectedly while the shifter is in the park position, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the casting date on the transmission housing and replace the transmission as necessary to correct this concern.

Our Quick Take

The vehicle may roll unexpectedly when the shifter is in the park position.
