Has your General Motors car been recalled for ignition problems? Share your story.

Are GM and your local dealer fixing your recalled car?

With the addition Monday of 8.2 million mainly older, midsize cars, General Motors now has recalled 29 million cars this year primarily because of unsafe ignition switches.

To find out whether your Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, Pontiac, Oldsmobile or Saturn is affected by any GM recalls, go to and type in the VIN number from your insurance or registration card.

I’m reporting on the GM recalls this week. If your car is affected and you have begun the process of getting it fixed, I’d like to hear about your experience.

How has GM treated you? How has the local dealer treated you? Is your car getting fixed, or are you on a long waiting list? Are you afraid to drive it? Have you been offered a rental car?

Please share your experience with me by email to

Don’t forget to include this specific information:

Your name, age, what town you live in.

The year and make of your car, and the local car dealer you’re working with.

And your daytime phone number, so I can check back with you.

Local GM dealers, I’d like to hear from you, too. Thanks.
