The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said 59,628 previous models of Saturn Aura sedans sold in the U.S. and Canada with four-speed automatic transmissions were recalled because a transmission cable may break. Operators may experience problem in shifting to “park” position if this happens, increasing their risk of sustaining injuries if the vehicle unexpectedly moves. The automaker said they are aware of crashes and injuries involving the recalled sedans. The NHTSA said GM will repair the problem in the transmission of the Auras for free.
