General Motors (GM) is recalling approximately 90,750 model year 2013-2014 Cadillac ATS, and 2014 Cadillac CTS vehicles.

The transmission shift cable on the affected ATS and CTS vehicles may detach from either the bracket on the transmission shifter or the bracket on the transmission.

If the transmission shift cable detaches while the vehicle is being driven, the transmission gear selection may not match the indicated gear and the vehicle may move in an unintended or unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash.

Furthermore, when the driver goes to stop and park the vehicle, despite selecting the 'PARK' position, the transmission may not be in 'PARK.' If the vehicle is not in the 'PARK' position there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.

GM will notify owners of the recalled Cadillac ATS and CTS vehicles, and GM dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure the cable is properly seated at the transmission and shifter brackets. All repairs related to this recall will be performed free of charge.

For further information on this recall, contact Cadillac Customer Service toll-free at 800-458-8006. GM's reference number for this recall is 14179.
