Reliability of ignition switch recall repair

Ask the People Who Own One: photograph by

2006 - 2012 Chevrolet HHR

Has anyone that has had a GM replaced ignition switch experienced a failure? My dealer replaced the lock cylinder only a year ago. That replacement has failed. When the repair shop tried to replace the lock cylinder, they found that the switch housing was damaged during teh recall 'repair'.

Ours was done at dealership in 2014 under the recall. No issues since then. Sounds like you had an incompetent dealership who damaged the housing. I would contact that dealer and ask them to rectify the problem.
