WASHINGTON – General Motors is recalling 8,789 2010-2011 model-year Cadillac SRX vehicles because they may have a transmission shift cable that was improperly installed and runs the risk of coming out of the transmission bracket.

As a result, the driver may struggle to shift the transmission out of gear, or the shifter may inaccurately indicate that the transmission is in park when it isn’t, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The vehicles involved in the recall were all manufactured from Oct. 26, 2008 through June 23, 2011.

To remedy the problem, dealers will inspect to make sure the transmission shift cable is properly routed and seated in the transmission cable bracket. There will be no charge for this service. The recall begins this month.

Owners can reach Cadillac at (866) 982-2339.
