    Lawsuits Says GM Hasn't Recalled All Of Vehicles Affected By The Ignition Switch Recall

      More lawsuits allege GM hasn't recalled all of the affected vehicles.

    Despite GM's recall of over 1.6 million vehicles due to faulty ignition switches, two new lawsuits allege that the company hasn't recalled them all.

    Bloomberg reports that one lawsuit has been filed in San Francisco's federal court states that faulty ignition switch problem is present in the 2010 Cobalt, a model that isn't in the current recall by GM. Another lawsuit filed in Alabama states that GM knew of defects with Cobalts built before April 2009 due in part to technical service bulletins issued to dealers. The TSBs stated that keys may "stick" or "bind" in the switch of non-recalled Cobalts and other vehicles.

    “We will not comment specifically on the suit or pending litigation. We are recalling all of the vehicles that were manufactured with the specific ignition switch involved in this condition,” said General Motors in a statement.

    Another case of GM being cheap coming back to bite them in the ass. You'd think by now they would have learned to get it right the first time.

    Not only that but it is amazing how many people want to blame the current folks in charge for this on another persons watch. Instead, pull in the forced out old executives and hold their feet to the fire for their greed and poor accountability. Do not burn the current people who are working hard to go in the right direction.
