GM Recalls 3.2M More Cars for Ignition Problems
DETROIT (AP) - 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 cars from the 2000 to 2014 model years.
The recalled cars are as follows:
Buick Lacrosse, 2005-2009
Buick Lucerne, 2006-2011
Buick Regal LS & GS, 2004-2005
Chevrolet Impala, 2006-2014
Chevrolet Monte Carlo, 2006-2008
Cadillac Deville, 2000-2005
Cadillac DTS, 2004-2011
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.
The previously recalled vehicles include:
Chevrolet Cobalt, 2005-2007
Chevrolet HHR, 2006-2007
Pontiac G5, 2005-2007
Pontiac Solstice, 2006-2007
Saturn Ion, 2003-2007
Saturn Sky, 2006-2007
In March, GM added vehicles from the 2008-2011 model years to that recall.
