GM is Recalling Over 7.6 Million More Cars for Defects

GM has announced six new recalls today for over 7.6 million vehicles in the United States, almost all in connection with the ignition key rotation. GM reported that “Among these recalled vehicles, GM is aware of seven crashes, eight injuries and three fatalities.” Note that at this late date, GM does not detail the eight personal injuries and does not characterize the deaths as wrongful deaths. While each case has its own facts, with GM’s ability to investigate such matters, the public has the expectation that GM should by now be willing to declare its view that these either are or are not the result of product defect.
The following vehicles are included with this latest GM recall:
1997-2005 Chevrolet Malibu sedans
1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue sedans
1999-2004 Oldsmobile Aleros
1999-2005 Pontiac Grand Ams
2000-2005 Chevrolet Impalas
2000-2005 Monte Carlos
2004 to 2008 Pontiac Grand Prixs
