Louisiana drivers may want to know about a recent recall involving more than 500,000 vehicles in the U.S. by General Motors. So far in 2014, the automaker has recalled more than 14 million vehicles in 38 separate incidents. According to reports, the recent wave of recalls is the result of GM's new process of fixing car issues after it was revealed that the carmaker waited more than a decade to repair an ignition switch defect in its older vehicles.
On June 13, GM announced that it is recalling 530,000 vehicles in addition to the 2.6 million already announced earlier in the year. The new vehicles, which include Chevrolet Camaros from the last four model years, Saab convertibles, Chevrolet Sonics and late model Buick LaCrosses, are being recalled for different reasons than the previously recalled cars. Those earlier vehicles had a faulty ignition switch, which could turn off the engine while the vehicle is in motion. This has led to 13 reported fatalities so far.
