Ignition switch failure connected to multiple deaths in GM recall
General Motors announced a recall of Chevrolet Cavalier, model years 2005 to 2007 and Pontiac G5, 2007 model. In the event of rough terrain or bumping of the key in the ignition, it may switch to “off” or “accessory” and cause the car to stop running. The risk of injury is increased when this happens because the airbags aren’t able to deploy in the event of an accident.
If you or someone you know was involved in an accident due to mechanical failure in one of these models, contact us immediately.
FEBRUARY 25 UPDATE:
General Motors ignition switch recall is expanded to include Chevrolet HHR, model years 2006 to 2007, Pontiac Solstice cars and Saturn Ion, model years 2003 to 2007. The problem is the same: if jostled, the key may switch out of the on position and cause the engine to shut off.
Please contact us if you believe this error is the reason behind yours or a loved ones vehicular accident.
