In February and March of this year, General Motors issued and extended a massive recall of several of their popular vehicle models, including the Pontiac G5 and Solstice, The Chevrolet Cobalt and HHR and the Saturn Ion and Sky. The Pontiac G5 recall was due to a faulty ignition switch that can make the vehicle shift from “on” to “off” easily and without warning.
The problem has been found to have been at fault for 31 vehicle injuries and 13 deaths according to General Motors, but safety experts and consumer advocates have indicated that there have been many more injuries and deaths. Concerns have also been voiced about economic damages caused to owners as a result of the Pontiac G5 recall.

GM Knew About Pontiac G5 Ignition Switch Problems
General Motors’ Pontiac G5 recall was part of a larger action that included 2.6 million vehicles. In testimony that was given before the United States Congress and the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, GM has acknowledged knowing about engine failures caused by the ignition switch as long ago as 2004.
Additional testimony has revealed that GM knew that the ignition system had potential problems back in 2001, but neglected to take action. As more information is revealed, the details of General Motors’ lack of concern for consumers becomes more apparent.
