The 2013 Chevrolet Silverado is among those targeted by the new rollaway recall.

General Motors is recalling nearly 70,000 late-model SUVs, pickups and vans because of potential defective transmission interlocks that could let the vehicles roll away after being parked.

More than a dozen different 2013 models are involved in the recall, 54,686 of the vehicles sold in the U.S., 6,310 in Canada, with nearly 8,000 more delivered in Mexico and overseas markets that mostly include the Mideast.
