General Motors Co. has now recalled 824,000 cars with faulty ignition switches, adding to the already massive recall of 1.6 million vehicles that have been linked to deaths. According to GM, about 5,000 of the defective switches may have been used to repair Chevrolet Cobalt and HHR, Pontiac G5 and Solstice, and Saturn Ion and Sky cars made between 2008 and 2011. GM says it will replace the switches in all of those cars because finding the 5,000 cars would not be feasible. GM recalled the 2003 through 2007 models of the cars last month, which have faulty ignition switches that can slip out of the “run” position when the car hits a bump, which can cause the airbags to fail.
