217,000 Vehicles recalled by GM

General Motors has recalled approximately 217,000 vehicles for leaking transmission fluid that can result in sudden vehicle stop and possible fire.  GM has discovered that two bolts were left out of the transmission start/stop mechanism and the bolt holes allow fluid to leak out of the transmission.  The resulting fluid leakage is also a potential fuel source and fire hazard.  The vehicles involved in this recall are as follows: 2020 Chevrolet Equinox, Traverse, and GMC Terrain; 2018 Chevrolet Malibu, 2018 – 2019 Chevrolet Cruze and Buick LaCrosse; 2019 – 2020 Buick Encore, Enclave, Cadillac XT4, GMC Acadia, and Chevrolet Blazer; and 2020 Cadillac XT6.  General Motors expects to begin the recall on or about December 14, 2020. 

For additional information, owners can contact their dealers or visit GM’s website at www.gm.com/contact-us.html.
