General Motors is recalling more than 194,000 vehicles in the U.S. built between 2018 and 2020 due to potential transmission oil leak that could cause the vehicle to stop or possibly catch fire.
The recall covers certain versions of 2018 through 2020 Chevrolet Equinox and Traverse as well as the GMC Terrain. Also included are the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu and 2018 and 2019 Chevrolet Cruze and Buick LaCrosse, as well as the 2019 through 2020 Buick Encore and Enclave, the Cadillac XT4, GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Blazer. The 2020 Cadillac XT6 also is covered.
GM said that two bolts may be missing from the stop-start mechanism, allowing the fluid to leak. To date, there have been no reports of crashes, fires, or injuries.
Dealers will inspect the mechanism and replace bolts if they’re missing. The recall is expected to start Dec. 14.
