DETROIT GM is recalling 392,459 full-size pickup trucks and SUVs in the U.S., including the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban four-wheel-drive models, because of a rollaway risk, the automaker said on Friday.

GM said an additional 20,874 vehicles were sold outside the U.S. and Canada.

Also affected are four-wheel-drive versions of the 2014-'15 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra and the 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.

"In these vehicles, the transfer case may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver," GM said in a statement. "If this occurs while a vehicle is in motion, no power will go to the wheels. If the vehicle is stopped or parked, it may roll away if the parking brake is not set."

GM said it is not aware of any crashes or injuries linked to the recall.

No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.

Chevrolet and GMC dealers will recalibrate the transfer case control module software. A date has not been set for the recall. Owners can contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.

Edmunds says: If you own one of these vehicles, it's best to get in touch with your dealer for next steps.
