Consumer Alert: GM Recall

By: Associated Press
By: Associated Press

General Motors Corp. is recalling about 277,000 vehicles because of a potential defect in the shift lever that could cause a vehicle to roll away.
GM says the recall involves 2009 model year versions of the Buick Enclave; Chevrolet Cobalt, HHR, Malibu and Traverse; GMC Acadia; Pontiac G5 and G6; and the Saturn Aura and Outlook.
A GM spokeswoman says about 75,000 vehicles have been purchased. The rest are at dealerships. No crashes or injuries have been reported.
In some cases, the shift lever and the transmission gear's position may not match, meaning a driver could move the shifter to the park position but the transmission gear may not be in park.
A vehicle could roll away and crash or have problems restarting.

    At least my General Motors has actually recalls their products. The foreign companies rarely do, that is until several people die. By the way, where do you people work, because chances are your company isn't perfect either.
