GM's recall notice may be too late for some

GM is set to recall more than 700,000 Chevy Cobalts and Pontiac G5s sold in the U.S. and Canada between 2005 and 2007, due to potential problems with each car’s ignition switch. The cars could potentially shut down (unexpectedly) if the key in the respective ignition comes out if it is weighed down by a heavy key ring. The problem could shut down the car’s engine, along with the airbags and the car’s anti-lock braking systems.

According to a recent Associated Press report, the famed automaker will be recalling more than 17,000 cars because of a possible problem with the accelerator molding in many of its vehicles.
