General Motors Defective Ignition Switches

Pennsylvania GM Faulty Ignition Switch Lawyers

The General Motors ignition switch recalls have received attention from all over the country. GM began recalling vehicles in 2014. The vehicles that have proved to be installed with faulty ignition switches include the Chevrolet Cobalt, Malibu, Impala, Camaro and HHR; the Oldsmobile Alero and Intrigue; the Buick Lacrosse and Lucerne; the Cadillac CTS, DTS, SRX, and Deville; the Pontiac G4, G5, Grand Prix, Pursuit and Solstice; and the Saturn Ion and Sky. Experts say that nearly 3.5 million vehicles have been affected by faulty ignition switches and recalled.

Accidents and subsequent injuries and deaths were caused when the ignition switches would turn off on their own without warning. This would in turn stop power from being applied to the braking system, steering and air bags. To date, at least 36 deaths and hundreds of injuries have been linked to the defective ignition switches. To make matters worse, information was leaked about open knowledge of these issues during and after vehicle production, but no measures were taken due to the amount of money General Motors would have had to spend in order to fix the problem. There are even stories that have surfaced about GM's legal department playing a role in the delay of the recall.
