NEWS: GM is recalling certain 2014 Buick Regal, LaCrosse, Verano, Enclave; and Chevrolet Impala, Malibu, Cruze, Traverse, and GMC Acadia vehicles; TRANSMISSION
Report Receipt Date: FEB 21, 2014 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V092000 
Component(s): TRANSMISSION
Potential Number of Units Affected: 355 

MARCH 2014 -- General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014 Buick Regal, LaCrosse, Verano, and Enclave, and Chevrolet Impala, Malibu, Cruze, and Traverse, and GMC Acadia vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions. In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable adjuster may disengage from the transmission shift lever. As such, these vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect." They also fail to conform to FMVSS number 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention." 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. General Motors will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace any affected transmission shift cable adjusters, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late March 2014. General Motors' number associated with this recall is 14048. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

NEWS: GM is recalls 27,000 Buicks and Cadillacs in the U.S. to fix a problem with the automatic transmissions
Yahoo News  @ March 14, 2013

MARCH 2013 -- General Motors is recalling nearly 27,000 Buicks and Cadillacs in the U.S. to fix a problem with the automatic transmissions.

The recall affects Buick LaCrosse full-size cars and Cadillac SRX crossover SUVs from the 2013 model year.

The company says a software problem can cause the transmissions to inadvertently shift into sport mode. That can unexpectedly override any slowing effect from the transmission, increasing the risk of a crash.

GM says no crashes or injuries have been reported.

GM will reprogram the transmission at no cost to the owners. The recall is expected to start March 28.

The Buicks were built from April 25, 2012 through March 6, 2013. The Cadillacs were built from May 29, 2012 through Feb. 18, 2013.

NEWS:   GM to recall some Impala and LaCrosse models

YAHOO NEWS -- August 12,  2011 – ..DETROIT (AP) — General Motors is recalling some 2012 Chevrolet Impala and Buick LaCrosse models to fix safety problems.

GM says 11,915 Impalas are being recalled in the U.S. and Canada because a power steering fluid hose gets too close to the catalytic converter. The hose can melt, and fluid can leak and start a fire.

GM said Friday that it knows of no complaints or injuries. The large sedans were built from April 19 through July 29.

GM also is recalling 4,293 LaCrosse sedans in the U.S. and Canada to fix software that runs a computer that controls the brakes. The software may not detect a malfunctioning sensor. If the sensor fails it could change the way the car handles and cause a crash.

GM says no crashes have been reported.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

AUGUST 2011 -- GM is recalling certain model year 2012 Buick LaCrosse passenger vehicles manufactured from June 9, 2011, through July 2, 2011, for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 126, "Electronic Stability Control Systems (ESC)." The stabilitrak system has an incorrect calibration that may cause the system to not properly detect if a sensor were to malfunction, and the warning light indicating that the system is not operating would not illuminate, as required in the safety standard. The improper diagnosing may cause the esc to falsely activate, resulting in sudden changes in vehicle handling and deceleration, particularly at higher speeds, which may cause the driver difficulty in maintaining the vehicle's desired path of travel and desired vehicle speed, and could result in a crash without warning. GM dealers will reprogram the electronic brake control module free of charge. The safety recall began on September 12, 2011.  11V-404


MARCH 2011 -- General Motors is recalling certain model year 2011 Buick Lacrosse and Cadillac SRX vehicles for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 103, "Windshield Defrosting and Defogging Systems". On these vehicles, the software in the electronic climate control (ECC) module may disable the ability to adjust the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system settings. If this happens, the driver will not be able to control the heating, cooling, and ventilation for the vehicle. If this condition affects the defrost system when it is required, it may decrease the driver's visibility, and could possibly result in a crash. Dealers will reprogram the ECC module free of charge. The safety recall began on March 11, 2011.    11V-149
