GM IGNITION RECALL LAWSUIT
General Motors (GM) is one of the world’s largest automakers, having led global auto sales for more than 75 years based on its strong reputation for safety and reliability. But the company has issued a recall of ignition components in millions of vehicles produced between 2003-2011 due to serious safety risks linked to more than 30 crashes and more than a dozen deaths.
If you or someone you love was harmed by defective ignition components in a recalled GM vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages—even if you’ve already settled a related claim with GM. Our defective product lawyers have the knowledge and experience to hold corporations accountable when they put profits over safety, and we’re here to fight for you.

General Motors Ignition Recall Dangers
GM issued two recalls for ignition components installed in several different vehicle models. First, the company recalled ignition switches after reports the components could be turned into the “off” position while driving, shutting down vehicle engines and disabling airbags and power steering. GM then recalled ignition lock cylinders because keys can be removed while cars are running, causing driverless vehicles to roll away and crash.
Is my GM vehicle affected by the ignition recalls?
More than 2.5 million GM vehicles were recalled for defective ignition switches and lock cylinders, including:
- 2003-2007 Saturn Ion
- 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt
- 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit
- 2006-2010 Pontiac Solstice
- 2007-2009 Daewoo G2X
- 2007-2010 Opel/Vauxhall GT
- 2007-2010 Pontiac G5
- 2007-2010 Saturn Sky
- 2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR
Safety concerns related to these vehicles led to more than 130 consumer complaints between 2003-2012, and representatives from U.S. Congress are investigating whether or not GM covered up the issue and delayed taking action that could have saved lives.
