Post GM recall affects 277,000 models with shifter problem

Whoooops.

http://www.autoblog.com/2009/03/13/g...ifter-problem/

Quote:
Citing a defect that can cause a parked vehicle to roll away, General Motors is recalling 277,000 cars and trucks. The models involved, all built for the 2009 model year, may have a loose clip on their transmission shift cable. The failure of the clip to be locked into place may prevent the transmission from moving into Park – even if the driver moves the shift lever into the proper position. GM has told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that dealers will inspect the transmission shift cable and replace broken units. Affected models include the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Cobalt, Chevrolet HHR, Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, Pontiac G5, Pontiac G6, Saturn Aura and Saturn Outlook.

yeah, but to quote two autoblog readers:

"Maybe GM should just call them Service Bulletins. Nah, I guess we will leave the sneakiness to Toyota."

I remember when ford had this problem back in the 90's, and one ford executive said " The owners are just not putting them into park hard enough"

I also Had a jeep that did it back in the 80's.. it almost took off down a mountin side with my son (3 years old at the time) in his car seat. I jerked him out and the jeep rooled into a split rail fence, if it had gone through the fence there would have been nothing to stop it before it went over the side of the mountian..
So these kind of things happen...
I guess my HHR is Ok since it is a 2007.
