GM Still Has No Switch Fix for Half-Million Cadillacs


Washington DC July 22, 2014; The NADA online newsletter reported that according to USA Today three weeks after a recall and telling dealers not to sell them, General Motors continues to look for a way to fix an ignition switch risk in half a million Cadillacs.

"We're still working on it," GM spokesman Alan Adler said Monday, noting that it's unclear how long it will take to find a solution. The ignition switches in 554,328 Cadillacs from the 2004-2014 model years can move out of the "run" position for two reasons: Heavy key rings can pull the switch out of "run" if the car is jarred by severe bumps; and the driver's knee can bump the key and knock the switch out of position.
