General Motors Ignition Recall Accident Risks
GM issued three recalls for ignition keys and ignition components installed in several different vehicle models. The first recall followed reports that ignition components can be turned into the “off” position while vehicles are in motion. When this occurs, vehicle engines shut down and important safety equipment is disabled, including air bags and power steering.
GM then issued a second recall targeting ignition lock cylinders after it was discovered that keys could be removed while cars are running, which can cause unoccupied vehicles to roll away and crash.
In June 2014, GM issued a third recall, this time for defective ignition keys which can be bumped into the off position while driving.
