General Motors Co. will recall about 7,600 Chevrolet Caprice police vehicles for a transmission issue, making this the 75th safety recall action the auto maker has taken this year and putting the number of total vehicles recalled by the company in North America at well over 30 million.
The vehicles are police patrol cruisers equipped with a specific transmission selector lever that contains two pins that can become displaced. If the pins get displaced, the driver may be able to shift the vehicle from “park” without depressing the brake pedal or remove the ignition key without the transmission being in “park.”
The situation may lead to vehicles rolling away, for instance when you lean against the car. http://online.wsj.com/articles/gm-recalls-nearly-7-600-chevy-caprices-1412684018
