Thousands is far from 2.6 million considering GM knew of problems as long as a decade ago. better the headlined should read ,

G.M. has only shipped thousands of switches so far when millions are needed!

It takes TIME to do things. You can fault them for not owning up to the problem sooner, or for designing garbage in the first place, but you can’t fault them for the rate of production that a subcontractor can crank something out at. I’m sure the facility is running around the clock, and the article says another facility is being brought online to meet the demand.

What is unacceptable, is that despite reporting on the issue, and noting that the fixes won’t all be completed for 6 or 7 MONTHS, Reuters didn’t see it fit to include the previously stated recommendation of not hanging lots of heavy junk from your keyring to stress the ignition switch. Until you car is fixed, there should be NOTHING on that keyring other than the ignition key!! And even then, your keyring should never weigh down the switch!
