Recalls: Saturn Aura, GM Crossovers, Ford Heavy-Duty Trucks

2007-2008 Saturn Aura

The Problem: In models equipped with the four-speed automatic transmission, the transmission shift cable can fracture, meaning that the driver would not be able to shift into the park position or remove the ignition key. This means that the car could roll away as occupants exit the vehicle. This recall expands on an earlier recall of this model from 2012 for defective tabs holding the shift cable in place that could come loose.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the shift cable assembly and mounting bracket free of charge in affected cars.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 56,214 2007-2008 Saturn Aura sedans manufactured between April 24, 2006 and October 31, 2007.

2014 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia

The Problem: A defect in the engine control module (ECM) software could cause the fuel gauge to display inaccurate readings. That could lead customers to accidentally run out of gas.

The Fix: Dealers will reprogram the ECM software to correct the problem, free of charge to owners.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 51,640 2014 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and GMC Acadia crossovers manufactured between March 26, 2013 and August 15, 2013.

2015 Ford F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550

The Problem: In models equipped with the 6.2-liter gasoline V-8 or the 6.7-liter diesel engine and 6R140 automatic transmissions, a problem in the transmission control software can affect the vehicle’s correct shift lever sequence. This could mean that when shifting from “Park” to “Drive,” the truck may engage “Reverse” for 1.5 seconds before engaging drive, even if it displays that the transmission is in drive.

The Fix: Starting early this month, Ford is notifying owners to have vehicles brought in to update the transmission software free of charge.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 3,973 2015 Ford Heavy-Duty trucks, including the F-250, the F-350, the F-450, and the F-550.

There have been so many recalls on late model trucks lately. Do you think it could be due to the fact that they are pushing the limits of technology each time they release a new model? I wonder if the pressure to be the best has taken a toll on reliability. http://www.chathamcountyalignment.com/about-us
