General Motors Recalls Additional 3.16 Million Vehicles
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Jun 17, 2014 in Defective Products
Yesterday, General Motors announced a recall of 3.16 million additional vehicles, which brings the total number of vehicles recalled this year in North American to approximately 20 million.
The new recall will bring in vehicle models from the years 2000 through 2014 in order to replace the ignition keys. The current keys and ignition switch may cause the key to turn when the vehicle is jostled by railroad tracks, potholes, or other obstacles.
Though this recall sounds similar to past recalls which are the subject of multiple lawsuits, GM says that this switch problem is different than the faulty ignition switch problems with the Chevy Cobalt.
The makes and models of the newly recalled vehicles are:
- Buick Lacrosse, 2005-2009
- Chevrolet Impala, 2006-2014
- Cadillac Deville, 20002005
- Cadillac DTS, 20042011
- Buick Lucerne, 20062011
- Buick Regal LS & GS, 20042005
- Chevy Monte Carlo, 20062008
Vehicles affected by the recall should be taken to a General Motors dealership for repairs. For more information on the GM recalls, visit Phillips Law Groups GM Timeline page.
