NEWS: General Motors adds 1.7 million more vehicles to recall list
Detroit Free Press  @ March 29, 2014

MARCH 2014 -- General Motors is expanding its ignition switch recall by nearly a million cars and recalling about 680,000 new vehicles for unrelated defects, reflecting a compounding series of quality problems that threaten to distract consumers.

The automaker on Friday added 970,700 vehicles to its ignition switch recall — bringing the total number to more than 2.5 million — after acknowledging that 5,000 small cars in the 2008 through 2011 model years may have had good switches replaced with bad ones.

The ignition switch recall — which previously covered 1.6 million small cars from the 2003 through 2007 model years — now includes all versions of the Chevrolet HHR, Chevrolet Cobalt, Saturn Sky, Saturn Ion, Pontiac Solstice and Pontiac G5.

All of those vehicles were made through 2010, except the HHR, which was also made in 2011. The expanded recall affects 824,000 vehicles in the U.S., 132,000 in Canada, 5,700 in Mexico and 9,000 in the rest of the world.

Separately, the company announced late Friday that it is recalling 490,200 pickup trucks and SUVs made within the last year and is recalling about 190,000 units of the Chevrolet Cruze sedan from the 2013 and 2014 model years.....

All of its 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks — its best-selling line of vehicles — as well as brand-new 2015 Chevrolet Suburban, Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs with 6-speed transmissions.

The truck and SUV recall, which covers 490,200 units in the U.S., is aimed at fixing a “transmission oil cooler line that is not securely seated in its fitting,” GM said in a statement. The situation has created at least three “incidents” with no injuries, GM said.

“If the line is not securely seated and transmission oil leaks from the fitting, the oil could contact a hot surface and result in a vehicle fire,” GM said.

The 2013 and 2014 Cruze with 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engines, accounting for about one-third of dealer inventory for the compact sedan. The company said the vehicles need new right-front axle half shafts that “can fracture and separate without warning.”

GM said the Cruze defect has affected at least several dozen vehicles, according to its own warranty data, but that it is not aware of any related crashes or injuries.

FEBRUARY 2014 -- General Motors LLC (GM) announced on February 10, 2014 that they are recalling certain model year 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, and 2007 Pontiac G5 vehicles. Two weeks later, GM increased the recall to include an additional 748,024 model year 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR and Pontiac Solstice vehicles and 2003-2007 Saturn Ion vehicles and 2007 Saturn Sky vehicles. In these models, the weight on the key ring and/or road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine. If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ignition switch, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. GM's number for the initial recall is 13454 and 14063 for the expansion. Note: Until the recall repairs have been performed, it is very important that customers remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the vehicle key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring.
