12/9/2014 - VAN BUREN, AR
FROM THE TIME WE BOUGHT THIS CAR IN JUNE 2014 TO NOW, THE CAR HAS PERIODICALLY SHUT OFF WHILE THE CAR IS IN MOTION. USUALLY IT HAS OCCURRED AT VERY LOW SPEED FORTUNATELY. IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET THE KEY TO THE THE TRUE OFF POSITION DESPITE THIS. THE RECALL ONLY CALLS FOR A PLASTIC INSERT TO BE INSTALLED ON THE KEY, WHICH WAS DONE ON 10/30/14. THE CAR STILLS HAS THE SHUT OFF ISSUE, IT HAS GOTTEN WORSE, AND THE DEALERSHIP SAYS IT NEEDS THE IGNITION SWITCH AND THE LOCK CYLINDER REPLACED. THE INSERT ON THE KEY IS INSUFFICIENT TO FIX THE IGNITION SWITCH ISSUE. ONE STILL HAS TO KEEP NOTHING ELSE ON THE KEY RING, YET GM INSISTS THE PROBLEM IS TRULY FIXED BY PUTTING AN INSERT ON THE KEY. SOUNDS LIKE THE IGNITION SWITCH IS FAULTY, TOO SENSITIVE AND THEY HAVE AN INSUFFICIENT FIX.
