Recalled auto componentsThe recalls include GM vehicles from 1997-2014. This latest set of recalls comes on the heels of GM CEO Mary Barra alluding to just this very occurrence while speaking with NBC:

“We’re going to continue to look at the data that we get, and we’re going to take the action that we need,” Barra told NBC. “If we find an issue, we’re going to deal with it.”

The GM models that highlighted the recall announcement included the 1997-2005 Chevrolet Malibu, 2003-2014 Cadillac CTS and 2005-2007 Chevrolet Blazer. The CTS and Malibu were recalled for “unintended ignition key rotation” and the Blazer for “possible electrical short in the driver’s door module that could disable the power door lock and window switches and, in rare cases, overheat the module.”
