GM has begun fixing faulty ignition switches

GM dealers started replacing the ignition switches this week in 2.6 million recalled vehicles.

GM mailed letters last week telling owners of 1.4 million 2003-2007 models to contact a GM dealer — Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet or GMC — and schedule an appointment for the recall. Owners of more than 800,000 recalled 2008-2011 models will receive letters in early May that confirm their inclusion in the recall.

The new ignition set, which includes ignition switches and cylinders plus new keys, can be installed in about 90 minutes at any of the automaker’s 4,300 dealer service departments.

If you own a GM vehicle right now, it’s best to contact your local service department and inquire about the recall.
