General Motors said it has conducted more than 80 different tests on vehicles subject to the ignition-switch recall, and the cars all performed safely when the car key in the ignition was the only item on the key ring.
Despite extremely challenging road conditions, these tests demonstrated that the cars in the ignition-switch recall are safe to drive as long as there is just one key on the key ring and the key fob is removed, GM said. As a result, car owners can safely operate their car under these conditions until their repair appointment.
GM has released a video in which Jeff Boyer, vice president of GM global vehicle safety, explains the recent vehicle testing and what safety measures car owners can take until their dealer repairs are completed. You can view this video by clicking on the photo or link above.
