The attorneys for those people filing a lawsuit against GM have written a request to U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi, seeking to have Detroit, Michigan-based automaker General Motors Co. issue a national announcement that its recalled vehicles are unsafe to drive and encourage people to park their cars at home.
If GM does follow through with this petition, they would have to produce around 2.6 million loaner vehicles so customers who have the recalled vehicles wouldn’t be left without a viable mode of transportation.
GM chief executive Mary Barra told members of Congress earlier this week that the vehicles they recalled, which all had ignition switch problems, are safe to use as long as nothing is hanging from the ignition key. Barra stated, “[If] there was any risk, I would ground these vehicles across the country.”
