GM Recalls More Vans for Possible Roll Away Defect

General Motors is recalling 980 of its 2013 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans because it might be possible to remove the key from the ignition when the car is still running and not in park.

If the key is removed while the vans are still running, it could – obviously – roll away and damage the van and hurt people in the process.

This is the second time in the last month that GM vehicles have been recalled for roll away risks. The previous recall was similar, but related to a shift lock issue where the affected cars could be shifted out of park without a key in the ignition and without a depressed brake pedal.

The number for the most recent recall is 12332 and customers with additional concerns can call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at (888) 327-4236. The recall is expected to begin on January 23 and performed free of charge to the owners.
