The faulty ignition switches in certain GM model vehicles are now being blamed for at least 12 deaths and 31 crashes. These defective ignition switches can turn to the “off’ and “accessories” positions unexpectedly and without warning, leaving drivers and passengers in dangerous or deadly situations. According to USA Today, General Motors is now offering free loaner cars and discounts on new cars for owners of the recalled vehicles.
Loaner Cars Might Not Be Safe Either
Concerned car owners should know that loaner cars might not be safe either. According to Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (CARS), dealers and manufacturers are currently lobbying congress in an attempt to kill the Raechel and Jacqueline Houck Rental Car Safety Act, which would prohibit rental car companies from renting unsafe and recalled vehicles to the public unless the necessary repairs have been conducted.
