What Is the GM Mass Recall About?

On February 7, 2014, GM issued a recall of approximately 800,000 of its Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 models. Many more recalls followed in the ensuing months. Between January and June 2014, a total of 45 recalls were issued, affecting tens of millions of vehicles in the United States alone. All of this was caused by a small but potent flaw in the affected vehicles' ignition switch design.

What Is the GM Ignition Switch Problem?

According to the official recall notification released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration: "The weight on the key ring and/or road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine. If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury."

Factors that increase the risk of the key moving out of the "run" position without warning include:

  • Front-end collisions
  • Driving over bumpy terrain and objects
  • Driving with a heavy key chain
  • Accidentally bumping the key or steering column

Was GM Negligent?

The short answer is yes. GM was aware of the ignition switch defect as early as 2001, yet the company took no action. And even when they received more reports in 2005, they nixed a recall in favor of a Service Bulletin issued only to dealerships, effectively keeping the defect hidden from the public. Since then, many people have died or been seriously injured. Much of this could've been prevented if only GM addressed the defect as soon as it was known.
