Default GM announces more recalls for ignition issues, 8.4 MILLION cars affected

Not much to say here, I bolded the sentence where it mentions the cars affected, for quick reference.

Article: General Motors Announces New Recall of 8.4 Million Cars Worldwide - NBC News

"General Motors announced six new recalls on Monday affecting 7.6 million vehicles in North America and 800,000 more overseas. Among the recalled vehicles, GM is aware of seven crashes, eight injuries and three fatalities in older model full-size sedans being recalled for inadvertent ignition key rotation. The vehicles recalled are 1997 to 2005 Chevrolet Malibu sedans, 1998 to 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue sedans, 1999 to 2004 Oldsmobile Aleros, 1999 to 2005 Pontiac Grand Ams, 2000 to 2005 Chevrolet Impalas and Monte Carlos, and 2004 to 2008 Pontiac Grand Prixs. The automaker also said that it will take a charge of up to $1.2 billion in the second quarter for recall-related repairs. General Motors has posted three dozen recalls this year for all manner of issues, affecting 20 million vehicles worldwide."

So why, as a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS owner, am I not receiving recall notices in the mail, etc.? Do I just call my local GM/Chevy dealer?


Thank you,

you can, they have a vin accessed data base and can tell you what has been done and what needs done. maybe they have not sent them. i guess its been in the news so much they figure why waste the paper. i have not received any for this round either.

By law they have to notify registered owners. When they detect a defect they have to notify the government in like five days. But they don't send the notices to the customers till they have a fix for the recall. I know Toyota as I work at the Toyota dealer sometime they know of a problem but don't have a fix for a couple months sometimes. But at Toyota we can look and tell if a specific vehicle will fall under that recall as soon as they know about the problem.
