GM recall nightmare continues
The number of recalls this year by GM rose yesterday to 29 as GM recalled another 2.4 million cars and trucks. That brings the number of vehicles called in to repair defects this year alone to a record 13.6 million in the US. According to the Boston Globe, that’s more than the total number of cars GM sold in the US in the last five years and surpasses GM’s previous US recall record of 10.75 million vehicles, set in 2004.
The latest recalls are to repair problems with safety belts in several crossover models, in addition to problems with airbags, gearshifts and retention clips in other cards. The recalls include Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia full-size crossovers from the 2009-2013 model years. It also covers 2009-2010 Saturn Outlooks for a problem with the front safety lap belt cables. 2004-2008 Chevrolet Malibus and 2005-2008 Pontiac G6s with four-speed automatic transmission have been recalled for a problem with the gearshift cable. 2015 Cadillac Escalades and Escalade ESVs are also being recalled due to an airbag defect, and 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HDs and GMC Sierra HD full-size pickups due to a potential fire hazard.
This latest recall comes on the heels of GM’s recall of 2.6 million Chevrolet Cobalts and other small cars for defective ignition switches, and a consequence of government regulations. GM was fined $35 million last week by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for concealing the deadly ignition switch defect for more than a decade. This is the largest civil penalty ever paid as a result of a government investigation of violations stemming from recalls. GM is now facing many lawsuits related to the problem. The automaker says that at least 13 people died in crashes linked to the defect, but lawyers representing affected individuals say the death toll is at least 53.
GM spokesman Alan Adler said yesterday that there were no injuries or deaths associated with the most recent recalls, but there were 18 accidents tied to a problem with the transmissions in 1.1 million Chevy Malibus and Pontiac G6s.
If you are concerned about your car, a complete list of recalls can be found on the GM website, or by contacting your dealer.

GM has issued the following statement regarding the cars listed above:
“There is a risk, under certain conditions, that your ignition switch may move out of the “run” position, resulting in a partial loss of electrical power and turning off the engine. This risk increases if your key ring is carrying added weight (such as more keys or the key fob) or your vehicle experiences rough road conditions or other jarring or impact related events. If the ignition switch is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury or fatality. Additionally, some of these vehicles have a condition in which the ignition key may be removed when the vehicle gear is not in the “Off” position. If the ignition key is removed when the ignition is not in the “Off” position, unintended vehicle motion may occur: (a) for an automatic transmission, if the transmission is not in “Park”; or (b) for a manual transmission, if the parking brake is not engaged and the transmission is not in reverse gear. This could result in a vehicle crash and occupant or pedestrian injuries.
GM have issued the following advisory to drivers of the above listed Chevy Cobalt, Chevy HHR, Saturn Sky and Saturn Ion, Pontiac Solstice and G5
“Until the recall repairs have been performed, it is very important that you remove all items from your key ring, leaving only the vehicle key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from your key ring. It is also very important before exiting the vehicle for customers to make sure the vehicle is in “Park”, or in the case of a manual transmission, to put the transmission into reverse gear and set the parking brake.”

General Motors Recall Update
On Friday, March 28, 2014, GM expanded its ignition switch recall to include an additional 971,000 small cars worldwide that may already have been repaired with defective switches. GM had previously recalled 1.62 million cars, made in the 2007 model year and earlier, to replace switches that could accidentally cut off engine power and, deactivate air bags. But GM realized it had sold thousands of defective switches to dealers and parts wholesalers that could have been used in newer cars, from the 2008 model year and after, that never had the defect. GM said that of the 95,000 defective switches sold to dealers and parts wholesalers, it could not account for 5,000 that might have been used to repairs newer cars. G.M. has linked 13 deaths to the faulty switches in the cars included in the initial recall. The expanded recall now includes: 2005 Cobalt, 2006 Cobalt, 2007 Cobalt, 2008 Cobalt, 2009 Cobalt, and 2010 Cobalt; 10 Cobalts, 2006 Pontiac Solstice, 2007 Pontiac Solstice, 2008 Pontiac Solstice, 2009 Pontiac Solstice, and -2010 Pontiac Solstices; , 2007 Pontiac G5s and Saturn Sky, 2008 Pontiac G5s and Saturn Sky, 2009 Pontiac G5s and Saturn Sky, and 20-10 Pontiac G5s and Saturn Skys;, 2006 Chevrolet HHR, 2007 Chevrolet HHR, 2008 Chevrolet HHR, 2009 Chevrolet HHR, 2010 Chevrolet HHR, and 20-11 Chevrolet HHR; and 2003 Saturn Ion, 2004 Saturn Ion, 2005 Saturn Ion, 2006 Saturn Ion, and 200-7 Saturn Ion.
