GM: Should be able to repair most recalled ignition switches by this fall

Posted:
DETROIT - General Motors says it is stepping up efforts to repair potentially faulty ignition switches on more than two-million recalled vehicles, including the Lordstown-made Chevy Cobalt.

According to GM's ignition recall website, parts production is running seven days a week on multiple shifts. General Motors says it plans to produce enough repair parts by October to have the ability to repair the majority of the vehicles impacted by the ignition switch and ignition cylinder recalls.

“Given that the ignition switch was in very limited production for several years, GM’s supplier, Delphi, increased production, pulled machinery out of storage, and found new suppliers for some of the part components,” wrote Jeff Boyer, vice president of GM Global Safety, today on GM FastLane. “We are buying new machinery and equipment to make parts quickly.”

GM and Delphi are working to get two additional production lines up and running this summer.

The cars covered are model years:

2003-2007 Saturn Ion

2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt

2007-2010 Pontiac G5

2006-2010 Pontiac Solstice

2007-2010 Saturn Sky

2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR

Owners of affected vehicles should contact their dealer or go to www.GMIgnitionUpdate.com to initiate the parts request.
