National Recall Investigation
Hello, and thank you for visiting my GM Investigation Portal.
Recently, I publicly implored General Motors to issue a "Park It Now" order for recalled vehicles with defective ignitions until GM has the parts available to fix them. I am extremely concerned that these vehicles remain on the road. I have personally seen the faces of the victims of this recall and their families- the accidents, injuries, and loss of life connected to these vehicles.
What some victims are saying:
Ever since my accident I am petrified to drive again. When you buy a vehicle, you expect it to protect you. How could GM keep people blinded??? How can we trust GM again? They never told us something was wrong. If I had known about the problem I would have definitely gotten it fixed. Anyone who has a GM vehicle, I tell them to get it checked immediately. I sure wasn't protected like I thought I was going to be.
I was in an accident and hit a fence head-on in March 2013. My airbags did not deploy. I contacted GM to let them know but they gave me the run-around. I told them I thought there was something wrong with the car but they did nothing for me. I was having problems even before the accident…the car shutting down and not being able to steer while driving. I fractured my back and am still having constant pain. I do not want to drive this car because I don't think the airbags will work if I am in another accident but I cannot afford to get another car.
My family has been loyal to Chevy and GM our whole lives. They are the only company was have ever bought a car from. But I will never buy from them again and I would never recommend them to anyone. I tried to let them know that their car had a problem and they ignored me and gave me the run around. I am still suffering everyday and they do not care that they caused me such pain.
Even if they fix my car and they claim the ignition switch is the problem, I am still afraid that my airbags will not deploy if God forbid I'm involved in another accident. I had no protection when my airbags didn't deploy, when I was in a major accident, my airbags did not open to save me.
I am still afraid that there is something else wrong with the car that I don't know about. I don't want to die!
I have had so many issues with my car. When I took my car to get fixed, I was told there were ten other codes and violations related to the car, including the ignition switch. I am just thankful to be alive.
I'm scared... I just told my sister that when I get in the car I'm like 'be careful, be careful'...I have always had problems with that car.
I will never buy another GM car, or vehicle that has GM parts. I don't trust them anymore. I don't know if ten years down the line there will be another recall on something else. I tell everyone I know that drives a GM to check their car out. I'm also afraid to drive my car with my children. Our activities these days have decreased significantly. I'm afraid that something is going to happen when I drive it. Now, I only drive my car when it is absolutely necessary, like when I have to go to work. I don't trust GM with my life or my children's.
I'll never again buy a vehicle from GM. They couldn't pay me to buy anything, not just a vehicle, but anything with the GM name. Never again. In fact, my whole family has KIA, and I can prove it. Never again.
I am scared to death to drive the vehicle since the airbags did not deploy when I was hit. I am afraid the airbags will not deploy if I am hit again. I can not afford to get another car that may be safer.

I am terrified every time we get into the car, but we have no other options. Please help us!!!
I had an accident in a recalled HHR and am stuck with this car. They are fixing it but I do not even want it back. My daughters and I were hurt and are still having medical issues two years later. I do not trust GM's cars and I do not believe GM will do the right thing for me or any of their customers. I don't think they were honest about what was wrong with their cars. I would never buy a GM car again and don't want to even ride in a GM car again.
Because GM has refused to voluntarily issue the "Park it Now" order and has continued to insist these cars are safe despite documented risks, I have filed an Emergency Motion in federal court to force GM to do the right thing. But I need your help.
On April 4, I will go before a judge to make the case that GM should tell owners to stop driving these cars until they are fixed. To do this, I will present to the court what I have found in my investigation of the recall.
So far, I have been shocked and horrified at what I have found. But my fear is that the information we have uncovered is just the tip of the iceberg. You may have additional information essential to this investigation.
If you are a GM car owner, a mechanic, an employee of GM, a salesperson … we need your stories …. Your stories can help save lives.
- If you are a GM vehicle owner and have one of the recalled vehicles – we want to inspect it.
- If you assembled these vehicles and knew of defects – we want to know what you knew.
- If you repaired these cars and saw the defects firsthand – we want to know what you found.
- If this recall has affected your life in any way – we want to hear your story.
We will respect your confidentiality. We will speak with your attorney, if you have one. The only goal is to get to the truth, and make sure no more lives are needlessly lost as a result of these defective, unsafe, vehicles.
Thank you in advance for assisting us with our national investigation of General Motors.
