GM recalls 3.4 million more vehicles for faulty ignition switch

DETROIT (WISH) – GM issued another recall on Monday. This time, 3.4-million vehicles are said to have dangerous ignition switches.

The latest recall includes these cars and model years:

  • Buick Lacrosse, 2005-2009
  • Chevrolet Impala, 2006-2014
  • Cadillac Deville, 2000-2005
  • Cadillac DTS, 2004-2011
  • Buick Lucerne, 2006-2011
  • Buick Regal LS & GS, 2004-2005
  • Chevy Monte Carlo, 2006-2008

GM says the issue is a different ignition switch problem from the one linked to at least 13 deaths nationwide, but it’s just as serious.

GM says the switches on those cars could move positions if your car is jarred. The company says it doesn’t take much for the switches to move. It could happen when you drive over railroad tracks or hit a pothole.The move could shut down your engine or take out your power steering.

GM is now starting the process of changing and replacing keys for drivers.

The recalls announced Monday bring to 44 the total number of GM recalls this year, covering 17.73 million vehicles in the U.S. and more than 20 million worldwide. The company has surpassed its old U.S. full-year recall record of 10.75 million vehicles set in 2004.
