Local woman upset with GM over recall
HALES CORNERS - "It's very concerning."
Kelly is steaming mad at General Motors.
"This is a 2007. They kept building the cars with that same error in it," Kelly said.
According to reports, GM may have known about the faulty ignition switch for almost a decade, yet didn't fix the problem. The car was given to her daughter to keep her safe.
"Felt it was very safe for her."
GM has recalled about 1.6 million cars for the ignition switch problem, including some Chevy Cobalts, Pontiac G5's, Saturn Ions and a handful of others. Kelly argues GM's solution is more of a headache.
"What has been confusing is in the news they have been talking about you can get a loaner or rental car. When I called two dealerships that's really not the case," Kelly said.
Despite knowing about the faulty part for years, the replacement part won't be available until April.
"I don't understand, that should be a priority."
