Do you own a Chevy Malibu,  Impala, Monte Carlo, Cruze, or Sonic?  Or maybe a Pontiac  Grand Am made after 1997?  Might want to watch the mail.

 A huge General Motors recall was announced Monday,  mostly for issues related to what GM says is “unintended ignition key rotation,”  or  accidental starting or stopping of the motor.   GM recommended motorists remove heavy objects from their key rings that hang in the ignition as well.   There have been a number of accidents and some fatalities related to the ignition “turning off” rendering the vehicle powerless, and almost uncontrollable (power steering goes away without the engine on).

Of the 7.6 million vehicles, they range from 1997 through 2014, and account for 6.8 million of the 7.6 million in the recall.

It also involves the highly touted new Cadillac CTS models, the newer Buick Verano, and the popular Chevy Cruze.
