General Motors has notified NHTSA that it is recalling vehicles because a defective ignition switch can affect the safe operation of airbag systems.
This is a serious safety issue that should be addressed immediately by following GM’s recommendation to "use only the ignition key with nothing else on the key ring" and getting the repairs as soon as consumers receive final notification from GM.
Owners can also contact GM for information on how to request courtesy transportation.
NHTSA urges owners of these recalled vehicles to contact GM immediately and to access additional information provided by the company on their corporate web site.
You may also contact the GM Customer Engagement Center at 1-800-222-1012.
