10/18/2014 - SAINT PETERS, MO
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

WHILE DRIVING ON A STEEP DOWNHILL CURVY MOUNTAIN PASS, THE KEY GOT JERKED INTO THE OFF POSITION. LUCKILY I QUICKLY RESTARTED THE ENGINE. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS ON ROADS WITH A SHARP INCLINE AND/OR DECLINE AS ONE WOULD NEED TO BE ABLE TO BRAKE AND STEER THE CAR INTO A SAFE AREA.

UNKNOWN OR OTHER

8/20/2014 - LAVALE, MD
AFTER STOPPING AT A STOP SIGN THE VEHICLE STOPPED DEAD IN THE INTERSECTION. WOULD NOT RESTART, COULD NOT BE STEERED AS THERE WAS NO POWER AT ALL. VEHICLE WAS TOWED TO DEALERSHIP WHERE A "NEW" IGNITION SWITCH WAS INSTALLED. BUT NO NEW SHORTER KEY WITH A HOLE IN IT WAS GIVEN TO ME. HOW CAN I BE SURE THE NEW SWITCH WILL NOT MALFUNCTION. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE RECALLED VEHICLES. IF I HAD GONE TWO BLOCKS FURTHER IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IN A BUSY MAJOR HIGHWAY INTERSECTION. SO FAR NO RESPONSE FROM COMPLAINTS TO VARIOUS GM SOURCES.
