Car on GM recall list? What to do

DEXTER, MO (KFVS) - General Motors recalled 8.2 million vehicles on Monday, adding to the long list of cars affected by faulty ignition switches.

Drivers of GM vehicles should receive a letter about the recall.

If you have not, or do not want to wait for the letter, a service director for local GM dealer Allen Christian said you can take your vehicle to any GM dealership to be fixed.

The service director said it could take a while to replace the ignition switch if there is a part shortage.

GM is also urging people to remove everything from their key rings until the cars can be repaired.
