Potential Number Of Units Affected: 65,000


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 built with an improperly adjusted automatic transaxle park lock cable assembly. If improperly adjusted, it is possible to shift from the "park" position with the ignition key removed. This condition increases the risk of a crash resulting from unintended movement.

Remedy:
Saturn is asking owners and retailers to perform a functional check of the automatic transaxle park lock cable assembly operation and, if necessary, to have the cable adjusted. If owners are not comfortable performing the functional check themselves, they can have their dealer perform this inspection for them. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 6, 2000. Owners who have questions about this recall should contact Saturn at 1-800-553-6000.

Dates of Manufacture:
