The epidemic continues.
Today is July 1, 2014. GM has recalled 29 million vehicles in a period of six months in 2014. Last year alone, all car manufacturers recalled approximately 22 million vehicles total. GM has surpassed that number in just half a year.
On Monday, June 30, GM recalled another 8.2 million vehicles stemming from the catalyst of GM’s safety crisis, the faulty ignition switch. The latest recalls are for “unintended ignition key rotation” and cover seven vehicles. These vehicles include the Chevrolet Malibu from 1997 to 2005, the Pontiac Grand Prix from 2004 to 2008, and the 2003-2014 Cadillac CTS.
The saga of the GM ignition switch began in February when GM reported; at first that at least six people died because of accidents involving faulty ignition switches that involved run off the road accidents. A few weeks later, the total number of deaths linked to this recall doubled, which brought multiple investigations from federal agencies and congressional hearings.
GM recalled vehicles stands at 29 million with half the year to go.
Where will GM end when the dust settles?
