GM reportedly knew about ignition switch defect

It appears that the massive recall General Motors recently issued is only the tip of the iceberg when considering the widespread liability it could be subject to. The recall involves hundreds of thousands of Chevy Cobalts built between 2005 and 2007, along with Pontiac G5s built in 2007. The defect involved the ignition switch in the cars, where the key could potentially fall out of the steering column if it was weighed down by a heavy key chain.

What you can avoid by keeping a windshield scraper handy

The next time you think about jumping into your car on a winter morning with only a small viewing space cleared from your windshield, you should think again. The time you think you are saving by letting your defroster clear it for you could lead to a severe accident. Essentially, you may be limiting the things you see, which will prevent you from avoiding them. 

'Selfies' while driving becoming increasingly popular

With all the backlash that distracted driving has garnered over the last two years, it is surprising when a report is released about how people still use cell phones while driving. According to a recent NBC News.com report, an increasing number of drivers are taking pictures of themselves with cell phone cameras while behind the wheel. Also known as “selfies”, these pictures are showing up in growing numbers alongside suggestive hashtags, including: #drivingtowork, #drivingintherain, #morningcommute, and #drivingfast.

Vehicles recalled by Kia, Toyota and Porsche

A geographic recall has been issued by Kia of nearly 80,000 Sedona minivans for repair of control arms. The front control arms can rust and break, possibly causing steering failure. Complaints have been filed by consumers who have experienced problems, but Kia says that it is not aware of any car accidents or injuries related to defective control arms. One owner said that if the steering failure that was experienced had occurred while the children were in the car and on the highway, the consequences could have been much worse than what they were.
