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
Potential Number of Units Affected: 56,214
Manufacturer: General Motors LLC
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.
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.
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.
