7,620 vehicles recalled by GM due to rollaway risk

Posted on August 14, 2016 1:53 pm under Automotive Defects

General Motors issued a recall on July 24 of about 75 hundred Buick, Chevy, and GMC vehicles due to a rollaway risk. The following vehicles were a part of the recall:

  • 2016-2017 Buick Verano
  • 2016 Chevrolet Malibu
  • 2013 Buick Encore
  • 2011 Buick Regal
  • 2013-2014 Buick Verano
  • 2011-2016 Chevrolet Cruze
  • 2010-2013 Chevrolet Equinox
  • 2013-2015 Chevrolet Malibu
  • 2011-2013 GMC Terrain

A mechanic that usually forces a car to be in park before the key can be removed from the ignition, the electronic park lock lever, isn’t working properly, meaning a car could roll away and cause damage once the driver has left the vehicle. Two model year 2016 Buick Veranos failed Michigan plant inspections, according to a GM employee.
