Have a new GM car? Check your driveway or parking spot again.
General Motors is recalling nearly 69 000 pickup trucks, SUVs & vans worldwide
because they can roll away unexpectedly.
The recall affects certain 2013 models of the Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Avalanche & Express. Also included are the GMC Sierra, Savana & Yukon as well as the Cadillac Escalade.
The cars can be shifted out of park even if the ignition key is in the off position or removed. GM says the cars may have been built with faulty park lock cables or malformed steering column lock gears.
GM says about 1 in 1000 of the vehicles has the problem & most haven't been sold yet.
Dealers will replace the steering column free of charge if necessary.
