GM SUV Recall Not Related To Ignition Switch
Aside from the GM SUV recall, the most notable of this year’s recalls has been the one involving more than 2.9 million vehicles with a defective ignition switch. The design flow causes the ignition system to switch from “ON” to “ACC” if the switch assembly comes out of alignment. The switch defect causes the airbags to fail to deploy. According to plaintiff’s attorneys, at last 100 deaths have been attributed to the faulty ignition switch.
