The last thing any Louisiana driver wants to hear is that their vehicle may have a defective car part. However, for many drivers who had GM vehicles, that's exactly what they heard regarding their ignition switches. The car maker is still under fire after waiting a reported 11 years to recall vehicles that had known ignition-switch defects. Thus far these defects have been linked to almost 30 deaths. The ignition-switch can slip out of position while the car is in motion. This causes the vehicle to stall and disable air bags. Since the start of 2014, 2.6 million vehicles have been recalled.
