GM dealers update status of recalled cars

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - It might take longer than expected to completely fix all of the cars recalled due to faulty ignitions. General Motors says parts are beginning to arrive at dealerships and cars are being fixed, the number of vehicles being recalled is causing a slow down. 

Little is known about the full details of a web conference between GM and it's dealers today except that the company gave updates to their dealership network on the status of the repairs. 

Local GM dealer Diane Sauer was in on the conference and says GM is preparing letters to send to those affected by the recall saying, "Once a customer gets a letter, they should contact their GM dealer and parts will be ordered specific to their vehicle and then the dealer will notify them when the parts are in and the vehicle can be scheduled for repair." 

Sauer added that customers concerned about their vehicles can visit www.gmignitionupdate.com for information on what to do if their vehicle has been recalled or if customers want to call and talk to someone at GM. 

The web-site also includes a three point check plan, and number one is a reminder that until the car is fixed, to remove everything from the key ring.

Sauer says the best thing owners of recalled cars can do is follow the advice from GM saying customers should keep only their key on the key ring, not even the key fob, until their vehicle is fixed or cleared to drive.
