WASHINGTON General Motors is recalling 355 vehicles, including the 2014 Buick Regal and Chevrolet Impala because a transmission shift cable adjuster problem could lead to a rollaway risk, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Also included in the recall are the 2014 Buick LaCrosse, Verano and Enclave, 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, Cruze and Traverse and 2014 GMC Acadia.

All of the affected vehicles are equipped with automatic transmissions.

"In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable adjuster may disengage from the transmission shift lever," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If a vehicle's shift cable disengages from the transmission shift lever, a driver may be unable to shift gear positions and the indicated shift position may not represent the gear position the vehicle is in.

"Should a disengagement occur while the vehicle is being driven, when the driver goes to stop and park the vehicle, the driver may be able to shift the lever to the 'Park' position, but the vehicle transmission may not be in the 'Park' gear position. There is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders."

No injuries or crashes have been linked to this GM recall, said James Cain, a company spokesman, in a phone conversation with Edmunds.

GM dealers will replace any affected transmission shift cable adjusters. The recall is expected to begin in late March.

Owners can contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, Buick at 1-800-521-7300 and GMC at 1-800-462-8782.

Edmunds says: If you own one of the affected GM vehicles, be in touch with your dealer because this recall is expected to start shortly.
