GM attracts attention and continues to struggle with the “Shift to Park” feature, which does not allow drivers to start and park their vehicles.

Many complaints about shift-to-park difficulties concern drivers who are obliged to repeatedly wriggle and move the electronic shifter in order for it to detect that the shifter is in the ‘Park’ position. This has resulted in drivers becoming stuck in their automobiles when the vehicles fail to change to the ‘Park’ position, preventing them from exiting.

   Vehicles that are affected may potentially roll away if they are not properly in “Park’’. 

This problem frequently necessitates a complete transmission replacement, which is both costly and time-consuming.

Several Chevy and GMC “Shift to Park” lawsuits have been filed, alleging that some GMC and Chevrolet cars cannot be switched off even after being placed in “Park”. This keeps drivers from turning off and locking their cars.
