GM calls "park it now" demand for recalled cars "inappropriate"

Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - Attorneys for General Motors are calling "inappropriate", a request that a federal judge order GM to urge the owners of more than two million recalled automobiles to stop operating the vehicles.

GM attorney Darrell Barger filed a document in U.S. District Court on Monday responding to a motion filed by attorneys representing some owners of the recalled cars.

Among other requests, the lawsuit is asking the court to order GM to issue a "Park It Now"alert to consumers driving one of the 2.6-million vehicles subject to an ignition switch defect that can disable the car's engines, airbags and power steering.

GM's motion opposing the order refers to previously filed arguments against the "Park It Now" motion, and promises to file a reply on Wednesday to address other issues presented by the plaintiffs.

It's not known when Judge Nelva Ramos of the U.S. District Court for Southern Texas, will issue a ruling. 

The original recall covers all 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion, 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR, 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit (Canada), 2006-2007 Pontiac Solstice and 2007 Saturn Sky vehicles are involved in the recall.

On March 28, the recall was expanded to include the following vehicles - 2008 – 2010 Pontiac Solstice and G5; 2008-2010 Saturn Sky; 2008-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt; 2008-2011 Chevrolet HHR.
