Half of defective GM vehicles yet to be repaired

Almost nine months after General Motors started recalling millions of its automobiles due to a faulty ignition switch, half of the total number of the affected vehicles have yet to be repaired, The New York Times reported on November 4.

Some owners have also raised concerns regarding the drawn-out schedule. Troy Luchterhand, father of 22-year-old Grafton resident Chris Luchterhand, wrote GM a letter in June of this year asking for a replacement ignition switch for his Saturn Ion to no avail, said, “How in the world could it take this long to get something fixed when people are getting killed by it?”

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it takes an average of 18 months before recalled cars in the United States reach a 75% completion rate on repairs.
