GM Recalls Chevy Cobalt and Pontiac G5

By | February 13, 2014
General Motors announced a recall earlier this week that is set to affect nearly 620,000 vehicles. Those affected cars include model year 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and 2007 Pontiac G5 models. In the vehicles, the ignition switch will potentially move out of the run position, turning off the ignition. Whether it's from the weight of the driver's key ring, poor road conditions, or other potentially jarring events, the engine may suddenly turn off if the key is removed. The airbags may not deploy in the event of an accident. If the vehicle were to shut off while on the road, the likelihood of an accident would increase. All owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by General Motors directly, and dealers will replace the ignition switch at no cost to the owner. A notification schedule has yet to be announced, but owners can contact Chevrolet by phone at (800) 222-1020, and Pontiac by phone at (800) 762-2737 for more information with recall number 13454. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is also available for contact by phone at (888) 327-4236 or online at
