DETROIT (AP) - General Motors is recalling about 56,214 Saturn Aura midsize cars in the U.S. because the automatic transmission shifters can fail.

The recall affects certain cars from the 2007 and 2008 model years with four-speed transmissions.

GM says a shift cable can fracture. If the problem happens while the car is moving, the driver won't be able to shift into "Park" or remove the ignition key. That increases the risk of the car rolling away unexpectedly.

The company will notify owners and replace the cable and mounting bracket at no cost to owners. GM hasn't determined yet when repair parts will be available.

GM says the cars were made between April 24, 2006 and Oct. 31, 2007. GM stopped making Saturn vehicles in 2009 as it headed into bankruptcy protection.
