Complaint - Electrical System

I RECEIVED RECALL LETTER FROM GM FOR "UNINTENDED KEY ROTATION". I HAD PREVIOUSLY CONTACTED GM INDICATING ISSUES WITH IGNITION SWITCH; GM THEN ISSUED "UNINTENDED KEY ROTATION" LETTER. I HAD THE RECALL WORK PERFORMED, YET ISSUE CONTINUED. I CONTACTED GM; I WAS INFORMED MY VEHICLE WAS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR IGNITION SWITCH RECALL AS VEHICLE WAS "OUTSIDE OF PARAMETERS OF 10 YEARS OR 100,000 MILES", "WHICHEVER COMES FIRST". MY VEHICLE IS A 2002 WITH APPROX. 95,675 MILES. I WAS INFORMED THE DEALERSHIP "SUSPECTED" ISSUE WAS "WORN OUT IGNITION SWITCH". DEALERSHIP DID NOT PERFORM MECHANICAL DIAGNOSTICS, ONLY VOICED "SUSPECTED". NHTSA INVESTIGATION NEEDS TO BE DONE TO DETERMINE IF THESE 2002 VEHICLES CONTAIN THE SAME GM IGNITION PART NUMBERS,IF SO, OUR VEHICLES MUST BE INCLUDED IN THE GM IGNITION SWITCH RECALL. GM DESCRIBED IN THEIR RECALL WHAT THE MECHANICAL ISSUES ARE IN THIS IGNITION SWITCH RECALL, MY CAR HAS THOSE MECHANICAL PROBLEMS; YET GM REFUSES TO ISSUE A RECALL LETTER FOR "IGNITION SWITCH" CITING THEY ARE NOT OBLIGATED BECAUSE NHTSA SET PARAMETERS OF "10 YEARS OR 100,000 MILES, WHICHEVER COMES FIRST." TO MEET THE CRITERIA THAT GM MUST ISSUE RECALL LETTERS FOR IGNITION SWITCH. IF THE DEFECTIVE PART IS THE SAME ON THESE MAKE MODELS AND CUSTOMERS ARE DOCUMENTING THEY HAVE THIS MECHANICAL ISSUE, THEY MUST BE INCLUDED IN THIS RECALL AND WE MUST NOT BE HELD AT A FINANCIAL HARDSHIP AND BE LEFT WITH DRIVING KNOWN UNSAFE VEHICLES. TO THOSE OLDS OWNERS THAT READ MY COMPLAINT, IF YOU HAVE ENCOUNTERED SIMILAR A ISSUE, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU AS WELL FILE A COMPLAINT SO THAT THE DATABASE WILL INCLUDE OUR MAKE/MODEL YEARS AND GM AND NHTSA WILL BE REQUIRED TO EXPAND THEIR PARAMETERS TO INCLUDE OUR MADE/MODEL VEHICLES IN THIS IGNITION SWITCH RECALL. UPDATED 12/10/14.
