GM Recalling 69,000 Vehicles

Comments Off

General Motors is recalling approximately 69,000 vehicles, including pick-up trucks, sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and vans because they may roll away unexpectedly. This is a potential safety-related defect. According to News4 WOAI.com, the recall will also include some 2013 Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Avalanche and Express vehicles, as well as Savana, Sierra, Yukon and the Cadillac Escalade.

General Motors indicated the vehicles may possess faulty park lock cables or steering column lock gears that are malformed. GM indicated that most of the vehicles that have this problem have not been sold to date, and 1 out of every thousand may have the problem. Thus far, no injuries or vehicle crashes are associated with the problems. Of the 69,000 vehicles, 14,000 of them were sold to customers in Canada, Mexico and other foreign countries.

Owners should contact their dealers for a free replacement of the steering column and for a repair of the faulty park lock cable. According to GM, their third quarter net income attributable to common stockholders was $1.5 billion, on October 31, 2012, compared with $1.7 billion for the third quarter one year ago.
