The ongoing General Motors recall was expanded to include at least 7.6 million more vehicles, the company announced on June 30, 2014.
The latest recall includes older midsize cars, dating back to 1997, because of faulty ignition switches. General Motors noted that three deaths, eight injuries and seven crashes are attributed to the recalled vehicles, but adds that it has no conclusive evidence that the faulty ignition switches were the cause of the crashes.
Though many vehicles were previously recalled for ignition switch problems, they were the smaller models.
The following General Motors vehicles are included in this latest installment:
- Chevrolet Malibu, model years 1997 to 2005
- Oldsmobile Intrigue, model years 1998 to 2002
- Oldsmobile Alero, model years 1999 to 2004
- Pontiac Grand Am, model years 2000 to 2005
- Chevrolet Impala, model years 2000 to 2005
- Chevrolet Monte Carlo, model years 2000 to 2005
- Pontiac Grand Prix, model years 2004 to 2008
So far, over 25 million GM vehicles have been subject to a recall in 2014.
