In some of the affected vehicles, the pinion thrust washer within the 10R140 transmission planetary 4 carrier assembly can disintegrate, causing metallic debris to contaminate the gearset and potentially damage the gear teeth. Metallic debris can subsequently get lodged in the transmission’s mechanical park pawl mechanism and prevent the vehicle from achieving or holding park.  Inability to achieve or hold park can result in unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of a crash.



DO NOT DEMONSTRATE OR DELIVER any new in-stock vehicles involved in this safety recall. A complete Dealer Bulletin will be provided to dealers before the end of 3rd quarter 2022, when it is anticipated that parts ordering information and repair instructions will be available to support this safety recall.

IMPORTANT: Dealers should open a Repair Order (RO) only when a full dealer bulletin is published. Opening an RO against an Awareness or Advance Notice will result in warranty rejections against a recall.



Owners of record will be notified via first-class mail after repair instructions and parts ordering information have been provided to dealers.


Federal law requires dealers to complete this recall service before a new vehicle is delivered to the buyer or lessee. Violation of this requirement by a dealer could result in a civil penalty of up to $21,000 per vehicle. Correct all vehicles in your new vehicle inventory prior to delivery.
