General Motors Ignition Switch Recall Information
Problems with the ignition switches in several popular GM models have lead to numerous crashes and at least 13 deaths. This defect causes the car to suddenly turn off while driving, disabling the engine and electrical system which in turn affects the power steering, brakes and airbags. With these essential safety features disabled and drivers unable to control their vehicles, crashes from the ignition switch defect can lead to very serious injury.
The ignition switch recall was issued for almost 2.6 million vehicles – affected models include:
- Cobalt (2005-2010)
- HHR (2006-2011)
- G5 (2007-2010)
- Solstice (2006-2010)

History of General Motors Recall
News first surfaced in February of 2014 that General Motors vehicles were having problems with the ignition switch, leading to several crashes and deaths. Since that time, GM has recalled over 30 million cars and trucks for defective ignition switches, airbags, and power steering functions, making the 2014 GM recalls the biggest in automotive history.
It has also become evident that General Motors was aware of the defects many years prior to issuing a recall, prompting a congressional investigation into why the company did not act sooner to prevent accidents related to the defective ignition switches. Evidence has shown that GM was aware of the potential defect as early as 2001, and did not act for over a decade despite reported accidents and several internal memos informing the company about the defective ignition switches.
