General Motors Recall

General Motors is currently recalling several 2013 Buick LaCrosse vehicles, and 2013 Cadillac SRX vehicles, for failing to comply with federal motor vehicle safety standards. The issue is apparently in the transmission shift sequence, the starter interlock, and in the transmission braking. The FMVSA (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Administration) notes that a software problem is causing the transmission to shift modes, causing problems while driving. If engine breaking is suddenly removed, it will increase the risk of a car crash.

To fix this problem, GM will notify owners if their vehicle is defective.  Dealers will then reprogram the transmission control module for free. This recall is scheduled to begin on March 28, 2013, in the meantime, Cadillac owners can contact 1.866.982.2339 with questions; Buick owners can contact 1.866.694.6546.  The GM number for this particular recall is 13053, have it readily avaliable when contacting help lines.
