GM has fixed nearly 154,000 of the ignition-switch recall cars. This number corresponds to 6% of the total number of the affected vehicles which is 2.59 million. It should be noted that the problem has resulted in at least 13 fatalities.
Nearly 6 percent of the affected vehicles has been fixed already. But the questions now is: ''Why are the repairs taking so much time?'' The thing is that the suppliers who build replacement materials for the ignition-switch recall cars will finish their work by October, this year. They have already produced 400,000 replacement kits, but these kits are not yet enough to cover all the affected vehicles.
Another important issue hindering the effectiveness of the recall is that not all the affected owners take their vehicles to the dealerships to have them repaired. This is a universal issue and is not connected with GM owners only. The problem is that people receive safety-recall notification letters but they do not care much to have their defective vehicles repaired. Hence, GM hopes that things will get better soon. People should understand that driving potentially defective vehicles is rather dangerous for their lives and the lives of their beloved.
