New York, NY (PRWEB) March 22, 2014
The consumer advocates at the Recall Resource Center are alerting the public of a new site for those who have owned or been in accidents involving recalled GM vehicles. The site contains the latest updates on the GM recall, which vehicles are affected, repair options, accidents and legal news.
The GM Recall Resource Center is a free resource created for owners of select Chevy, Pontiac and Saturn vehicles, as well as those involved in accidents with these vehicles. Visitors can get the latest recall information, avoid potential dangers, and decide if they need legal advice.
On February 13th, General Motors announced a recall of approximately 1.6 million vehicles, including 2003-2007 Saturn Ions, 2005-2007 Chevy Cobalts, 2006-2007 Chevy HHRs, 2006-2007 Pontiac Solstices, 2007 Pontiac G5s and the 2007 Saturn Sky*.
The recall is intended to repair defective ignition switches, which can turn off engine power while the vehicles are in use, disabling essential safety features like power steering, power brakes and airbags**.
GM estimated the faulty switches were linked to around 30 accidents and 12 deaths**. However, the Center for Auto Safety recently reported a review of NHTSA records shows at least 303 deaths and thousands of accidents possibly related to the recalled vehicles***.
Lawyers are offering help to those injured or who lost a loved one in an accident with a recalled GM vehicle. Anyone affected is encouraged to visit the Recall Center or speak with a lawyer about their legal options. The Recall Center only recommends lawyers who have already handled GM recall lawsuits.
