General Motors says it has now fixed 70 percent of the roughly 2.3-million vehicles it started to recall last February due to faulty ignition switches, according to an reports.
The General says those number are accurate as of Thursday, April 9, and that the rate of switch replacement is now on par with the average recall rate in the U.S. for a similar time frame.
So far, the company has fixed 1.6-million of the 2.3-million recalled cars that are registered and still in use across the world, GM spokesmen said on Friday.
The rate of completion now stands at 71 percent in the U.S. The average completion rate for vehicles that are 1.5-years into a recall is 75 percent, according to the NHTSA.
Last year, GM made changes to its internal systems and now dealers are notified if they have a recalled vehicle on lot that’s not been repaired. They are also told how much the company will pay them if they fix it.
