    GM: 57.8 Percent of Vehicles In the Ignition Switch Recall Have Been Fixed

      Some Good News On the GM Ignition Switch Recall

    There is some good news appearing from General Motors' ignition switch mess. The Detroit News reports that GM dealers have repaired 1.36 million ignition switches globally out of 2.36 million it believes are still in use, or about 57.8 percent of vehicles around the world. It should be noted that the 2.36 million amount is down from the 2.59 million GM recalled back in February and March.

    "The difference between the 2.59 million produced and recalled, and the populations being sought is made up for by scrapped vehicles or vehicles no longer traceable by registration," said GM spokesman Alan Adler in a email.

    In the U.S., GM dealers have repaired 1.14 million vehicles out of the 1.96 million vehicles involved in the recall. That still leaves around 823,000 cars still needing to be fixed. Adler admits get those vehicles into the service center will be difficult.

    It is good they have fixed the problems and have made a good effort in doing so and still need to fix the ones that are still being drivien in the road the switch may not work and not turn off when the driver wants too. There have been deaths due to this, as the switch was faulty while driving and causing accidents and this needs to be fully resolved othewise more will happen and damage the company. There is a lot to do and will take time to make sure every car is fixed and also, all defects are gone and people can have trust in the conmpany and know it is reliable.
