GM’s Delays in Notifying the Public Lead to Court Cases
Investigations indicate that when the ignition switch is jostled in these vehicles — by something as common as a heavy keyring — the engine can unexpectedly turn off, even if the car is traveling at a high rate of speed. The shut down also disables important guidance and safety components, such as the power steering, and may cause the airbags to not deploy in the event of a crash.
There have been hundreds of consumer complaints. GM knew about problems with the ignition switches as early as 2001, and in 2006, the company sent safety bulletins to car dealers regarding the ignition switches. GM has been investigated by both Congress and the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration because of the company’s failure to timely issue a recall or make the public aware of the dangers of the ignition switches.
