Recall of Chevrolet vehicles (01V283000)

Date Owner notified by MFR Sep 6, 2001
Date: Received Date: Sep. 5, 2001;   Recorded Date: Sep. 18, 2001;  
Campaign Id: 01V283000
Recalled Vehicles: 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer,    2002 GMC Envoy
Component: Power Train:transfer Case (4-wheel Drive).     Manufactured by: General Motors Corp.
Affected Vehicles: 895
Recall Summary: Vehicle description: sport utility vehicles (4 wheel-drive). Some of these vehicles were built with a range shift collar in the transmission transfer case that contains cracks.
Consequence: This condition could result in a complete fracture of the range shift collar and subsequent loss of vehicle forward and reverse gears, and the inability to maintain "park" position. This increases the risk of a vehicle crash resulting from unintended movement of a parked vehicle.
How to Fix: Dealers will replace the transfer cases and update the control module calibration. Owner notification began September 6, 2001. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.
