GM calling in 56k Saturn Aura sedans over shift cables

General Motors may have made a few mistakes when it came to the whole ignition-switch debacle, and it will likely be dealing with the consequences for some time to come.

RECALL Subject : Transmission Shift Cable may Fracture/Rollaway Report Receipt Date: APR 30, 2014 NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V224000 Component(s): Potential Number of Units Affected: 56,214 Manufacturer: General Motors LLC
SUMMARY: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2007-2008 Saturn Aura vehicles manufactured April 24, 2006, through October 31, 2007, and equipped with a four speed automatic transmission. In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable may fracture.
CONSEQUENCE: If the transmission shift cable fractures while the vehicle is being driven, when the driver goes to stop and park the vehicle, the driver will not be able to shift the lever to the "PARK" position, or remove the ignition key. If the vehicle is not in the "PARK" position there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.
REMEDY: GM will notify owners, and GM dealers will replace the shift cable assembly and mounting bracket, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-553-6000. GM's number for this recall is 14152. View the attachments for this post at: http://www.jlaforums.com/viewtopic.php?p (4391549#284391549
