Potential Number Of Units Affected: 1,637


Summary:
Certain passenger vehicles equipped with automatic transaxles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 114, "Theft Protection." These vehicles were assembled with the transaxle shift cable clip missing or improperly seated. Without the clip, the cable can slip out of its bracket and the transaxle lever would not move along with the shift lever. The driver may put the shift lever in Park, but the transaxle may be in Reverse or Neutral. Unexpected movement of the vehicle could cause a crash.

Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the transaxle shift cable retainer clip to verify proper installation and, if necessary, replace the clip and adjust the cable to specifications. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 27, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Saturn at 1-800-553-6000.

Dates of Manufacture:
