DETROIT - General Motors is recalling 426,240 cars because of a problem that could cause the vehicle to roll away after the driver has turned it off.
The recall involves 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibus, 2008-2010 Pontiac G6s, and 2007-2010 Saturn Auras.
The tabs on the transmission shift cable end can break and separate, and then the position on the shift lever and the actual position of the transmission gear may not match.
That means that a driver may shift into park and remove the key, but the transmission gear may not be in park.
The driver could then have problems restarting the car, or it could roll away because it’s not in park.
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a fix or repair it free of charge.
Owners can contact GM at 1-800-521-7300.
