GM Recalls 3.2 Million More Cars For Faulty Ignition Switches

Updated: 5 months ago.
A 2006 Chevrolet Impala LTZ is one of the vehicles on the latest recall list.

General Motors has announced the recall of 3.2 million more cars for faulty ignition switches. The latest recall is in addition to the 2.6 million cars that GM has already recalled for a similar problem.

"The safety recall follows a review of ignition issues following the recall in February of 2.6 million Chevrolet Cobalts and other small cars. GM is aware of eight crashes and six injuries related to this recall," GM said in a statement.

"If the ignition switch moves out of the 'run' position, there is an effect on power steering and power braking. In addition, the timing of the key movement out of the 'run' position, relative to the activation of the sensing algorithm of the crash event, may result in the air bags not deploying," the statement says.

The vehicles in the latest recall are:

-- Buick Lacrosse 2005-2009

-- Chevrolet Impala 2006-2014

-- Cadillac Deville 20002005

-- Cadillac DTS 20042011

-- Buick Lucerne 20062011

-- Buick Regal LS & GS 20042005

-- Chevy Monte Carlo 20062008
