04/10/14 Transmission and Drivetrain General motors llc (gm) is recalling certain model year 2014 buick regal, lacrosse, verano, and enclave, and chevrolet impala, malibu, cruze, and traverse, and gmc acadia vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions. in the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable adjuster may disengage from the transmission shift lever. as such, these vehicles do not conform to federal motor vehicle safety standard (fmvss) number 102, "transmission shift lever sequence, starter interlock, and transmission braking effect." they also fail to conform to fmvss number 114, "theft protection and rollaway prevention."

If a vehicle's shift cable disengages from the transmission shift lever, a driver may be unable to shift gear positions and the indicated shift position may not represent the gear position the vehicle is in. should a disengagement occur while the vehicle is being driven, when the driver goes to stop and park the vehicle, the driver may be able to shift the lever to the "park" position, but the vehicle transmission may not be in the "park" gear position. 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.

General motors will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace any affected transmission shift cable adjusters, free of charge. the recall began on april 10, 2014. chevrolet owners may contact general motors at 1-800-222-1020, buick owners at 1-800-521-7300, and gmc owners at 1-800-462-8782. general motors' number associated with this recall is 14048.

Buick Verano Recalls

Some things are often misunderstood about recalls and technical service bulletins (TSBs). Plus a disclaimer.

  1. Recalls do not have to be issued only because something is prone to failure. NHTSA (a government agency) can only require a recall if a failure will affect safety, emissions, fuel economy, or compliance with some other regulation or law. Manufacturers can voluntarily recall cars for problems that do not affect these, though.
  2. Recalls often apply to only some cars of a specific model year, rather than all of them. You should receive a letter from the manufacturer if your car has been recalled. You can also check with the dealer, which will know which (if any) recalls pertain to your car.
  3. The primary purpose of TSBs is to inform dealers about known problems with a car and how to fix them. They are not the same as recalls. As with recalls, TSBs often only apply to some cars, not the entire model year.
  4. Dealers often will not provide a preventive repair just because a problem described in a TSB might happen to your car. They'll usually want to observe symptoms that the problem is already affecting your car.
  5. Even if there are symptoms, a manufacturer doesn't have to pick up the cost of a TSB repair if the car is out of warranty, though sometimes they do.

We provide the text of recalls and TSBs as provided by NHTSA. There can be errors in the text. If you sign up for notifications in My Garage, we will try to get these to do, but for various reasons (some beyond our control) cannot guarantee you will receive them. When in doubt about a recall or TSB, contact the dealer.
