General Motors Co. said Friday it is recalling more than 68,000 new SUVs, pickups and vans that could roll away after being parked.
The Detroit automaker said it is recalling the 2013 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV and Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado HD, Silverado LD, Suburban and Tahoe; and GMC Savana, Sierra HD, Sierra LD, Yukon and Yukon XL because they may not meet a federal requirement requiring transmission shift interlocks.
The recall includes 54,686 in the United States and 6,310 in Canada. GM spokesman Alan Adler said the recall also includes 710 in Mexico and 7,038 trucks to oversees markets, primarily the Middle East. No crashes or injuries have been reported, Adler said.
GM said the vehicles may have been built with a fractured park lock cable and a malformed steering column lock part in the lock module assembly.
