On April 22nd, General Motors (GM) announced that thousands of replacement parts were on their way to GM dealers so they can begin fixing the millions of vehicles manufactured with faulty ignition switches. While GM did not say how many parts were sent out, the company did advise that it will be until the end of autumn until all parts are available.
The replacement parts include a new ignition switch as well as a new ignition lock cylinder and new keys for owners of certain vehicles such as the Chevrolet Cobalt and the Saturn Ion. GM is now sending letters to the vehicle owners affected by the GM ignition switch recall advising that they have their vehicles fixed.
GM engineers first discovered a defect with the ignition switch more than a decade ago, but GM failed to fix the problem. Numerous crashes and deaths is GM addressing the issue. Presently, there are over 50 faulty ignition switch lawsuits pending against GM in which it is claimed that people were injured as a result of the ignition spontaneously shutting off.
If you received a recall letter from GM or believe your vehicle may have a faulty ignition switch, you may be eligible to file a GM ignition switch lawsuit. Contact the Auto Defect Lawyers at Anapol Schwartz for a free case evaluation.
