LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Baron and Budd, a national law firm dedicated to protecting consumer safety, is currently investigating the recent faulty ignition recall issued for numerous GM vehicles. According to consumer reports, the faulty ignitions may cause the vehicle to stall, turn off or suddenly lose power, as well as failure of the air bag system during an accident. The recall has triggered a government inquiry.
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, GM acknowledged that they were aware of ignition problems as early as 2001, during testing of the Saturn Ion. GM has also stated that it believes there have been 12 deaths linked to this ignition defect and possibly more than 300 crashes.
Newspaper reports published in 2005 state that GM issued a service bulletin for some of the affected vehicles, advising dealerships to warn drivers to remove “unnecessary items from their key chains.” Just a year later, the warning was expanded to include more GM vehicles.
“This is a significant issue that could lead to serious injuries if not taken care of promptly,” said Roland Tellis, attorney at Baron and Budd. “We encourage drivers who have experienced these issues to come forward.”
