General Motors announced a recall today for 2013 Cadillac SRX and 2013 Buick LaCrosse vehicles, over a software issue that may cause them to inadvertently switch to sport mode. 

When the transmission is switched over to sport mode, the car removes any transmission-related engine braking. If that switch is made with the driver knowing, it can increase the risk of a collision.  Approximately 26,582 vehicles are affected overall.

The recall is expected to begin on March 28, 2013. General Motors will notify affected owners, and reprogram the transmission control module free of charge.

For more information, you can contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, or Buick at 1-866-694-6546.
