General Motors is recalling almost 6,800 GMC Canyon as well as Chevy Colorado midsize pickup trucks from the 2011 model year because of the improper operation of the automatic gearbox on the selected trims.
In accordance with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's decision, the models featuring either a 3.7-liter 5-cylinder or 2.9-liter 4-cylinder engine and a four-speed automatic transmission may have problems with the gearbox selector. The PRNDL automatic transmission levers may not exactly reflect the true gear. Regardless of the situation, the vehicle could roll away when parked or drivers won't be able to restart their cars.
General Motors dealers will replace the automatic gearbox adjustment clip with a new one free of charge. The recall will start on July 19.
