GM Recalls – The Facts Released Today

Posted on - Wednesday, February 24, 2016 under Dangerous Drugs & Products

Lots of interesting tidbits to be taken from today’s GM recalls announcement.  Amazingly, General Motors knew of the faulty ignition switches for well over a decade; however, it began no recall on the affected vehicles until earlier this year!  Sure, the past decade has been tough on American auto manufacturers, but to risk the lives of its most important corporate assets (i.e. its customers) is beyond awful.

As of today, General Motors has received at least 125 claims for death as a result of the faulty switches.  Moreover, General Motors has received at least 320 claims for injuries caused by the faulty switches.  According to General Motors, 58 of those injury claims are of the serious nature, meaning they involve the loss of use of limbs, amputation, permanent brain damage, or severe burns.  Bear in mind that claims can be filed with General Motors through December 31, 2014.

The problem, in simple terms, is that the ignition switch can slip out of the “run” position causing the vehicle to lose power suddenly.  The loss of power usually renders the brake, power steering, and air bag systems of the vehicle useless.  General Motors has recalled more than 2.9 million vehicles dating back a decade to look into the issue.
