The Prn12 Shift Lever Has Been Slowly Loosening Over A Period Of 6 Months, And Has Resulted In Not Being Able To Start The Vehicle In Park. Also, When Shifting Into Park, The Shifter Will Not Engage, And Will Allow The Vehicle To Roll Forward Or Backward. No Accidents Have Been Caused As A Result Of The Excess Play In The Shifter. I Checked The Internet For Possible Causes And Found Many Threads Explaining The Cause As Two Star Bolts That Have Either Loosened, Or Completely Fallen Out In Some Cases. I Have Tightened The Bolts Myself, But I Believe This Is A Situation That The Dealers Should Address. *tr
