Lawyers Wants GM to tell Owner of Recalled Cars to 'Park It'

CORPUS CHRISTI - Local attorneys want General Motors to tell the owners of 2.5 million recalled vehicles to park them.

Bob Hilliard and Thomas J. Henry are asking U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos to grant that emergency order.

Hilliard is representing the families of two teenage girls in Wisconsin who died in the crash of a 2006 Chevy Cobalt.

Hilliard argues that the GM cars recalled for ignition switch problems could lose power at any moment and expose their occupants to serious injury or death.

But GM is urging the judge not to intervene and instead let the recall of its vehicles proceed. GM has linked a faulty ignition switch in those vehicles to at least 13 deaths.

The recall impacts the following vehicles:

  • 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5
  • 2003-2010 Saturn Ion
  • 2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR
  • 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit (Canada)
  • 2006-2010 Pontiac Solstice
  • 2007 Saturn Sky
