GM Recalls Another 3.2 Million Cars with Faulty Ignition Switches

By  | 

General Motors is recalling 3.2 million more cars in the U.S. because of ignition switch problems.
The company says it will change or replace the keys on the following vehicles:

Buick Lacrosse: 2005-2009
Chevrolet Impala: 2006-2014
Cadillac Deville: 2000–2005
Cadillac DTS: 2004–2011
Buick Lucerne: 2006–2011
Buick Regal LS & GS: 2004–2005
Chevy Monte Carlo: 2006–2008

GM says the switches can unexpectedly move out of the "run" position if the cars are jarred, such as by going over railroad tracks or a pothole. That can shut off the engines and disable power steering.
The recall is part of a GM review of ignition switches after the company recalled 2.6 million older small cars earlier this year for a similar problem.
GM also is recalling 166,000 other cars for a series of problems, including:

2013 & 2014 Cadillac CTS & ATS because a shift cable could break

2011 Cadillac CTS because a possible gasket leak

2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra because of a bad power steering hose clamp

2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra because the floor mats could slip

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray because the airbags might not deploy

GM also raised its expected second-quarter charge for recall expenses to $700 million.
