Consequence:
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.

Solution:
Dealers will inspect and replace any affected transmission shift cable adjusters, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late March 2014.

      I feel that GM got away with not having recalls on the Chevy Equinox also. I owned two and had very similar problems with those as mentioned in all the recall articles, but every time I asked the dealership, they said they hadn't heard of anyone having similar problems.

      bought a brand new 2014 Cadillac cts coupe 6 cyl. within 10 days the car started making a noise just like a string of bells at Christmas. yes it sounded like jingle bells. been to the dealer ship in Indiana pa 5 times with the car. they tried to tell me to take to a mechanic, I had look at it, to get it fixed and gm would pay him for it. guess what if I had done that the guarantee would have been void . was told to run high test gas , 3 tanks , said it was a valve clatter. tried to tell them it wasn't. got no sadisfication from that. factory man , jeff drove it with me in it , he didn't hear it and I did. they tried another fix while I was there, for 4 hours. service man jerry and I went for a ride and it sounded off with the jingle noise. refused to take the car and demanded a loaner . had words with jeff , finally the sales manager got me a loaner. now my car sits at the dealership till the engineer comes in to look at it in 3 weeks, while I still make payments. have called Detroit mich over 8 times and got the run around there. referred me back to jeff , the factory man. real run around. I have asked the dealership for a buy back rather than going legal . I fall under the guide lines only 5 months old with 4,300 miles on it. don't have the car and still waiting

      I have been a GM fan since I was a kid. My first car was a 1950 Chevrolet 4 door deluxe sedan, and I have presently a 2003 Chevy Suburban. With all these recalls, it might be time to look at Ford....!!!

      I have had a GMC Envoy for the past 4 years and have put almost 100,000 miles on it during that time. The only recall was for the driver's side window system not working properly, which they had a recall on and it was fixed. Other than that, I love the Envoy. It also hasn't appeared on any of the current recalls of so many other vehicles. I agree with the 2 posters below, forget about all the "extras" and focus on what is needed in a vehicle, especially safety factors. I also agree with the person who wrote that they'd rather have a horse. I think that will be my next mode of transportation, since I am retired now and have no need for a car.

      I have no problem with GM cars and trucks. I have gotten good service from the big three, and will continue to buy their cars trucks and suvs'. Just be patient and the recalls will eventually.

        The company is full of dead wood and conniving bureaucrats who make decisions in their own self interest. I know from first hand experience. Buy you cars and trucks somewhere else.

      Well, that settles it...My next "new" vehicle will be anything from 1975 or earlier. Saftey features? Well, no there sure isn't the saftey features of today's vehicles. There sure as heck isn't all the electronic sensors, monitoring systems and diagnostics that overburden the simple concept of transportation either. New cars are starting to be the "F-35" of the roads.....far to much electronics and not enough simplicity. Well, the more you overthink the plumbing the easier it is to stop up the drain.
