According to the class-action plaintiffs, an auto manufacturer should not consider safety more important than safety. It should also never hide defects in its vehicles from the customers or the public.
The first round of 2014 recalls by GM covered 2.19 million vehicles in the United States. It included the following models: 2005-2009 Cobalt, 2007-2009 Pontiac G5 and 2006-2009 Chevrolet HHR; Pontiac Solstice and Pontiac Solstice 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit 2003-2007 Saturn Ion and 2007-2009 Saturn Sky.

The second recall involved 3.14 million vehicles. It was related to "the design of the ignition key (rather than having a hole)," which allowed the key fob and key to hang lower in the vehicle, making it more vulnerable to being struck by the driver's knee.
Plaintiffs explained that the third recall was for 7.29 million vehicles. This included "the 2000-2005 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo, 1997-2005 Chevrolet Malibu, 1999-2004 Oldsmobile Alero, 1999-2005 Pontiac Grand Am, and 2004-2008 Pontiac Grand Prix; certain 2003–2009 Cadillac CTS, and certain 2004–2006 Cadillac SRX cars."
Plaintiffs claim that similar to the second recall in which the defect was downplayed, New GM also recalls a cheap, ineffective fix in the form of new keys. …"These vehicles are not being upgraded by New GM.
According to the class-action plaintiffs, New GM was aware of these defects since its inception in 2009. New GM failed to correct the problem despite knowing about the dangers and life-threatening nature of the ignition switch defects.
Many lawyers offer free consultation for owners of recalled GM cars with an ignition switch defect. If these cars are damaged due to defects that GM should have cured earlier, the owners should be entitled to damages.
