UNDATED (www.incnow.tv) - General Motors recalls nearly 34,000 Buicks and Cadillacs due to a problem with the automatic transmission.

The recall involves the 2013 Buick Lacrosse full size cars and the 2013 Cadillac SRX crossover SUVs. GM says software problems can cause transmissions in the vehicles to unexpectedly shift into sport mode, which can override any slowing effect and increase the risk of a crash.

GM will reprogram the transmission free of charge.
