Fatality risk: GM recalling 780,000 compacts
DETROIT — General Motors is recalling nearly 780,000 compact cars in North America because the engines can shut down unexpectedly and cause crashes. 6 PEOPLE DEAD!
The recall affects Chevrolet Cobalts and Pontiac G5s from the 2005 through 2007 model years.
U.S. safety regulators say the weight of the key ring and rough roads can move the ignition switch out of the run position, cutting the engine and electricity. If that happens, air bags may not work.
GM says owners should remove nonessential items from key rings until the problem is fixed.
