GM Ignition Switch Recall Affects Millions of Vehicles
General Motors (GM) has recalled nearly 15 million cars, mostly Chevrolet, Pontiac, Saturn and some other small vehicles due to a defective ignition switch that can slip out of the “run” or “on” position – knocking out safety features like power steering or brakes and disabling air bags in the event of a crash.
GM has set aside significant compensation funds for those injured or killed in an accident as a result of the faulty ignition switches. However, time to take legal action is limited – all claims must be filed by December 31, 2014.
Investigation Reveals Problems Were Hidden – Delaying Recall for Years
GM has admitted knowing about the problem for more than a decade, yet, didn’t begin the recall until earlier this year. To date, 97 deaths and hundreds more injuries have been attributed to the defective ignition switch – and the numbers keep rising as reports and claims are filed.
