General Motors Co. recalled more than 3.1 vehicles in two months


In fact, in the last two months, General Motors Co recalled more than 3.1 million vehicles in the US and other markets. The recalls were linked to faulty ignition switches, airbag wiring harnesses, brake parts and other components and the defects affected several car models.
The company will spend $300 million in the first quarter to cover the costs related to recalls. The reality is that the first time the ignition switch problem was reported to the company was in 2001. During the last decade this led to government criminal and civil investigations, congressional hearings and class-actions lawsuits in the US AND Canada.
Between the cars affected are some 2008 – 2009 and all 2010-2013 Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia crossovers, some 2009 and all 2010-2013 Chevrolet Traverses and some 2008-2009 and all 2010 Saturn Outlooks. Will be recalled also 303,000 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana to replace the plastic material in the passenger instrument panel. Other models had to be returned to the manufacturer for some modifications or replacements. The hope is that this will prevent further vehicle related incidents.
