GM recalling thousands of pickups with starter switch problems

An estimated 3,300 pickup trucks are being recalled by General Motors Co. (GM) to replace their faulty starter switches, an article of USA Today reported on October 17.

The recall was issued on October 16, only a month after GM agreed to a settlement of $900 million for criminal charges linked to their vehicles that effected by a faulty starter switch. Though the defect addressed by the most recent recall is similar to the ignition starter problems of Cobalt vehicles, GM explained that the cause of the problem is different in nature.

Just like the Cobalts, though, the affected pickup trucks may suddenly lose power if the key suddenly moves out from its position, leading to accidents. GM dealers are expected to change the locking enclosure of the starter switch in the affected vehicles.

When people are injured by defective products, they often have to deal with great financial, physical, and emotional hardships afterwards — especially when these defects are found in automobiles.
