GM Ignition Switch Recall

by admin on April 14, 2014 in News

According to the documents submitted to the [investigative] committee, GM opened numerous internal investigations into the now-recalled vehicles since the early-2000s, but did not recall the vehicles due to a number of reasons, including “tooling cost” and piece price being “too high.”

Further problems were caused by GMs own engineering staff.  A panel of Congressional investigators recently discovered a “smoking gun memo” dated May 27, 2006, in which a lead GM engineer allowed a new ignition part to be implemented without changing the original part number.  This decision “caused years of delay in in tracing a defect on nearly 2.6 million Chevrolet Cobalt, Saturn Ion, and other Saturn Pontiac models.” This allowed the faulty switches to be categorized along with the newer, safer ignition switches, thus masking the serious defect in the original switch. Our firm is investigating the GM Ignition Switch Recall cases for the following make and models:

  • Chevy Cobalt 2005-2007
  • Pontiac G5 2005-2007
  • Saturn Ion 2003-2007
  • Chevrolet HHR 2006-2007
  • Pontiac Solstice 2006-2007
  • Saturn Sky 2006-2007
