The Problem: General Motors has found reason to recall approximately 3,360,555 vehicles, most of which are no longer in production, because the vehicles’ “ignition switch may inadvertently move out of the ‘run’ position if the key is carrying extra weight and experiences some jarring event.” See: Chevrolet Cobalt and Chevrolet Camaro if you haven’t heard of this before.

Number Of Vehicles Being Recalled: 3,160,725 in the United States alone. 3,360,555 vehicles when including vehicles sold in Canada, Mexico and outside North America.
The Fix: Owners need to visit GM dealerships so they can “rework of the keys” by “adding key inserts” in the next few weeks. Until the rework or replacement is completed, owners of the recalled cars are urged to remove additional weight from their key chains and drive with only the ignition key.
