GM Still Looking for Fix for Some Recalled Cadillacs

Tina Robinson2 years ago

General Motors says that it is still trying to find a fix for more than half a million Cadillacs that were recalled in June due to “unintended ignition key rotation.” According to Reuters, the problem is with second generation Cadillac CTS and SRX vehicles.

GM Issues Stop-Sale Order for CTS, SRX

In June, GM recalled certain Cadillac CTS and SRX because the ignition switches can move out of the run position and cause engine stalls and disable airbags. GM believed the problem could be fixed by adjusting the key fob from a slot to a hole design; however, GM engineers found that drivers could still bump the ignition switches with their knees and shut off the vehicle in newer models.

The problem was found to persist in the 2008-2014 models, which have a different ignition switch than the earlier models. GM says it is looking for a solution that can be used in all of the model years.

At the beginning of July, GM issued a stop-sale order for the 2003-2014 CTS and 2004-2006 SRX because it has yet to find a fix for the recalled vehicles. The recall and stop-sale affects approximately 554,000 vehicles. GM spokesman Jim Adler said that order “is still in effect for the foreseeable future.” 

Thomas J. Henry Represents GM Recall Victims

Thomas J. Henry is representing more than 1,000 GM recall victims across the United States and has been investigating injuries and deaths linked to the recall since day one. The firm launched a nationwide media investigation into the recall in April, which brought forth thousands of affected individuals who had information critical to the investigation – information that the firm has handed over to federal agencies also investigating GM’s sluggish response the recall. As more and more individuals have flocked to Thomas J. Henry for representation, the firm has continued to push GM for a victim settlement fund. The firm has had several talks with GM’s victim compensation expert Ken Feinberg regarding appropriate victim compensation for the thousands affected by a fatal design flaw in ignition switches which left numerous dead and countless others seriously injured.
