The Braun Corporation is recalling 639 model year 2020-2021 Chevrolet Traverse wheelchair accessible vehicles with Power In-floor Ramp conversion.
The company said the screw and clip that hold the inner wheel-well plastic shroud in place could chafe against the transmission case in affected vehicles, potentially resulting in a transmission fluid leak. If such a leak occurs, it could lead to a loss in engine propulsion and increase the risk of a crash.
The company says consumers may be able to identify the problem early if they see transmission fluid on the ground near the driver’s side front tire. A dash warning indicator may also notify drivers of the issue, but it may not light up consistently in every case.
What to do
Dealers are being advised to replace the screw and clip and inspect them for signs of contact with the transmission case, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on December 17, 2021.
Consumers can contact Braun customer service at 1-877-488-0359, or contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, for more information.
