General Motors is recalling more than 217,000 cars and SUVs in the US and Canada because transmission oil can leak, causing them to stop moving or possibly catch fire.
The recall covers certain 2018 through 2020 Chevrolet Equinox and Traverse versions, as well as GMC Terrain. Also included are the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu and the 2018 and 2019 Chevrolet Cruze and Buick LaCrosse, as well as the 2019-2020 Buick Encore and Enclave, Cadillac XT4, GMC Acadia, and Chevrolet Blazer. The 2020 Cadillac XT6 is covered too.
GM noted in government documents released last weekend that two bolts may be missing from the stop-start mechanism, allowing fluid to leak out. The company says it has no reports of collisions, fires or injuries.
The dealer will inspect the mechanism and replace the bolts if they are missing. The recall is expected to begin on December 14.
