GM recalls nearly 55,000 vehicles

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – General Motors is recalling nearly 55,000 vehicles because they can roll away unexpectedly.

The recall affects certain 2013 models of the Cadillac Escalade, the GMC Sierra and the Chevrolet Tahoe. 

Also included are the Chevy Suburban, Avalanche, Express and the GMC Savana and Yukon. 

GM officials said the trucks may have been built with faulty park lock cables or malformed steering column lock gears. 

The vehicles can easily be shifted out of park even if the ignition key is in the off position or removed.

So far there are no reports of crashes or injuries caused by the problem. 

Owners can take their vehicles to a certified GM dealer to replace the steering column free of charge.
