GM Recalls Recalled Cars for New Defect

General Motors (“GM”) has issued a new recall to replace another part of the ignition mechanism in small cars that had already been recalled for faulty ignition switches.

 The new recall is for 2003 to 2011 car models, including the Saturn Ion, Chevrolet Cobalt, Pontiac Solstice, Pontiac G5, Saturn Sky, and Chevrolet HHR. The recall is to replace the lock cylinder. The lock cylinder is where the key is inserted to the vehicle’s ignition. The current lock cylinders allow the key to be pulled out while the car is running.

GM says that the lock cylinder problem could lead to “a possible roll-away, crash and occupant or pedestrian injuries.” GM further states that it is “aware of several hundred complaints of keys coming out of ignitions.” It said that searches of GM and government databases found one roll-away in a parking lot that resulted in a crash and one injury claim.

GM dealers are now receiving the new ignition switches for the recall fix. Dealers will now replace the ignition lock cylinders and if necessary, reprogram new keys.

If you or someone you know has been affected by this recall or has been injured by any other defective products, please contact Khorrami Boucher Sumner Sanguinetti, LLP for a private consultation.
