General Motors Ignition Recall Accident Risks

GM has issued 3 recalls of ignition keys and other ignition components used in various vehicles. The first recall came after reports that ignition components could be switched to the "off" position when vehicles are moving. 

If this happens, engine power is cut off and vital safety equipment gets removed, such as airbags and power steering. For GM injury lawsuits, you can visit the General Motors injury lawsuit center online.

GM has since issued a second recall of the cylinders for ignition locks when it became apparent that the keys can be removed when cars are running, which could cause cars that aren't occupied to roll off the road and crash.

The recall was announced in June of 2014. GM released a second recall with this one focusing on defective ignition keys that could be pushed into off while driving.
