Recall 19V446000

Gear Selector Can Be Moved From Park Position While Removing Key

Recall Details

The gear selector placed in the "park" position may actually not be securely in park, allowing the key to be removed and allowing the vehicle to roll if the parking brake is not set. Dealers will replace the shifter cable bushing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

On affected vehicles, the gear selector can be moved to the "park" position. and the key can still be removed, allowing the vehicle to unexpectedly move. This increases risk of accident and injury.
