GM recalls 980 vehicles for roll away defect

2013 Chevrolet Express

General Motors is recalling 980 units of the 2013 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana due to a problem that may be possible to remove the key from the ignition when the car is running or the transmission is not in the park position.

"If the ignition key is removed while the vehicle is still on and/or the vehicle is not in Park, the vehicle may rollaway and the unintended movement of the vehicle may result in a possible crash or injury to pedestrians," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem.

The affected vehicles include the Chevrolet Express built November 1, 2012 through December 21, 2012 and the GMC Savana manufactured November 14, 2012 through November 20, 2012.

The recall is expected to begin on January 23 and dealers will replace the ignition lock cylinder and the two associated keys. For more information, owners can call GMC at 1-866-996-9463 and Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 and NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
