General Motors has recalled 194,105 American cars and SUVs built between 2018 and 2020 due to missing bolts that could lead to a transmission oil leak, power loss and potential fire or crash.
A dozen GM models are among those recalled by the automaker, but the 2018 to 2020 Chevrolet Cruze accounts for the majority with 122,980 cars.
The missing bolts are a big problem as the engines in these vehicles could experience a transmission oil leak. If that happens, there could be a loss of power and ultimately a collision. Additionally, the leaked oil may be a fire risk in the affected vehicles. This information is according to GM recalls documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Additionally, other vehicles covered under the recall include: 2018 Chevrolet Malibu; 2018–2019 Buick LaCrosse; 2018–2020 Chevrolet Equinox and Traverse and GMC Terrain; 2019–2020 Buick Enclave, Buick Encore, Cadillac XT4, Chevrolet Blazer, and GMC Acadia; and 2020 Cadillac XT6.
If you own one of these vehicles, visit the NHTSA website for GM recalls to find out steps to fix your vehicle.
Dealerships are inspecting the start/stop transmission accumulator because it’s the part that may be missing bolts. Also, the service will involve replacing missing bolts.
