Recall Alert: 54,686 Model-Year 2013 GM SUVs and Trucks

2013-Cadillac-Escalade-Platinum-001
GM is recalling 54,686 model-year 2013 versions of several trucks and SUVs due to a faulty park lock cable, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were built from Nov. 7 through Dec. 18, 2012, and include the 2013 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV and Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe; and GMC Savana, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL. Check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.

In these vehicles, a fractured park lock cable or malformed steering-column components could allow drivers to shift from Park with the ignition key removed or the key in the Off position. This could cause the vehicle to roll away, increasing the risk of injury or accident.

GM will notify owners starting Jan. 17, and dealers will replace the affected parts for free. Owners with questions can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, Cadillac at 866-982-2339 or GMC at 866-996-9463. NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline (888-327-4236) can also provide more info.
