General Motors is recalling 6,768 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks from the 2011 model year over issues involving the automatic transmission on select trims, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Certain models equipped with either a 2.9-liter four-cylinder or 3.7-liter five-cylinder engine and a four-speed auto gearbox may have problems with the transmission selector. The PRNDL shift lever icons might not accurately reflect the true gear. Depending on the situation, drivers won’t be able to restart their vehicles or the vehicle could roll away when parked.
GM dealers will install a new automatic transmission adjustment clip free of charge. The recall will begin on July 19. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, GMC at 866-996-9463 or NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
