I ma glad this doesn't cover my 2010. Mine comes from 2009 October.

Hey Escapemax, are you the same user from escape-central.com?

The one and Only.

Sorry. I am trying to type one handed. Due to a Motorcycle accident on Sun. Fractured my clavical. Fortunately it was on my left side and I am right handed.

Hey all, how is everyone today?

I have seen articles about this as well, but I don't have any additional details about it yet. Once I get the details I will get them to you.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Michelle, Chevrolet Customer Service

Waiting for my "recall letter" from GM, in the meantime I'll be using my emergency brake more routinely. So glad my Chevy Dealership finally acquired a Kuerig machine in the waiting lounge!

Hmm I've missed that detail...Looks like it covers only 4spd transmissions. Regardless, I will check out where mine was built.

Mine was built in Lordstown. Recall only covers Orion plant with 4spd trannies.
