Extensive Testing Shows Ignition Recall Vehicles Safe to Drive with Single Key
GM is working tirelessly to provide customers affected by the ignition recall with information they need to minimize inconvenience until their vehicle is repaired. If you are driving a vehicle involved with the recall, it is critical to remove all items from the key ring, including the key fob, until you are able to have your vehicle repaired by your dealer. It is also important to make sure the vehicle is in "Park" or in the case of a manual transmission, to put the transmission into reverse gear and set the parking brake before exiting the vehicle.
GM conducted more than 80 different tests over extremely challenging road conditions on vehicles subject to the ignition switch recall and found the vehicles are safe to drive if you only use a single key on the key ring and the key fob is removed. Watch the video below for more info from GM's Vice President of Global Vehicle Safety Jeff Boyer about what to do if your vehicle is affected and to see some of the test footage GM submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
