GM Ignition Switch Recall Apr 8, 2014

Since the beginning of 2014, General Motors has recalled approximately 971,000 vehicles due to faulty ignition switches. There have been numerous instances where the ignition switch has moved out of the “run” position causing the engine to turn off and failure of electrical components. Additional weight on your key ring such as a key fob or more keys can increase the risk of this situation occurring. Additionally, rough road conditions can cause the key to move from the “run” position.

The vehicles that have been included in this recall are all 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2005-2007 Pontiac G5, 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion, 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit (Canada), 2007 Saturn Sky, and 2006-2007 Pontiac Solstice.  As of March 28, 2014, the recall was expanded and now also includes all 2008-2010 Saturn Sky, 2008-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2008-2010 Pontiac Solstice and G5, and 2008-2011 Chevrolet HHR.
