GM Sets Recall Parts Plan in Overdrive: Seven-day operation expects to have all parts needed made by October


recall

DETROIT--May 16, 2014: With parts production running seven days a week on multiple shifts, General Motors plans to produce enough repair parts by October to have the ability to repair the majority of the vehicles impacted by the ignition switch and ignition cylinder recalls.

“Given that the ignition switch was in very limited production for several years, GM’s supplier, Delphi, increased production, pulled machinery out of storage, and found new suppliers for some of the part components,” wrote Jeff Boyer, vice president of GM Global Safety, today on GM FastLane. “We are buying new machinery and equipment to make parts quickly.”

GM and Delphi are working to get two additional production lines up and running this summer.

The cars covered are model years:

2003-2007 Saturn Ion 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt 2007-2010 Pontiac G5 2006-2010 Pontiac Solstice 2007-2010 Saturn Sky 2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR

Owners of affected vehicles should contact their dealer or go to GMIgnitionUpdate to initiate the parts request.
