UPDATE: GM Recall adds 3.4 million cars

General Motors has issued yet another recall, this time covering almost 3.4 million cars.  This recall related to another ignition switch issue that causes the cars to move out of the run position, turning off power steering and power braking while the car is being driven.  This could be caused by extra weight on the key chain jostling the ignition when the vehicle hits a pothole or other debris in a roadway.  The recall affects vehicles from model years 2000 through 2014 and includes the Chevrolet Impala, Cadillac Deville and DTS, and the Buick Lacrosse, Lucerne and Regal.


One troubling aspect of the latest recall is that it pertains to a different ignition switch from the first recall, meaning that GM’s faulty designs have been systematic for years.  This also means that the recall will provide a different fix.  Instead of replacing the entire ignition switch like the first recall, this time GM dealerships will add an insert in the key that closes the slot and only allows a small hole for a key ring to be attached.  Until they are able to see a GM dealership, owners are urged to remove any additional weight from their key chain if they have any of the above listed cars.


However, the most troubling and unfortunate aspect of this new recall is that it is linked to another eight crashes and six injuries.  This shows even more systematic disorganization and lack of care on GM’s part, that such obvious defects went unnoticed for over a decade.  Fortunately, experienced personal injury lawyers such as those at Fisher Injury Lawyers can help protect you if you’ve been injured by one of the defects detailed in these recalls.  Particularly, Fisher Injury Lawyers is unique in that it has an Attorney-Engineer, Chris J.
