Pontiac G5 ignition switch GM lawsuitGeneral Motors is recalling at least 33,000 Pontiac G5s produced in 2007 to 2010. The recall stems from fears the Pontiac G5’s ignition switch turns off while driving. GM was aware of the defective nature of the G5’s switches (GM was the parent company of Pontiac), but failed to issue a mandatory recall. The defective switches lack enough torque to keep them from accidentally disengaging when drivers bumping the keys with their knees or the keys are weighed down by a heavy keyring.

Internal company emails show that GM attempted to order its parts supplier to ramp up production for two months before the recall was finally issued. GM’s recall delay may have violated federal safety laws, which require vehicle manufacturers to report problems no later than five business days after becoming aware of the safety issue.

If you were injured while driving your 2007-2010 Pontiac G5, you may be eligible for substantial compensation. The Washington, D.C. office of the Cochran Firm has a team of experienced injury attorneys who are currently investigating claims of injury caused by defective GM ignition switches.

2007-2010 Pontiac G5 recall lawsuit

The Pontiac G5’s design is based on the Chevrolet Cobalt and was sold across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The Saturn Ion is also based on Pontiac G5’s platform. All three of these vehicles are subject to the GM ignition switch recall.

The faulty ignition switches can cut off the car’s power, disabling the power steering, power brakes, and even the airbags. Once this happens, the vehicle becomes a missile on the highways, putting nearby drivers at risk.
