Arizonans with recalled GM vehicles to share $6M settlement
PHOENIX (AP) — About 33,000 Arizona residents who own General Motors vehicles will share up to $6.3 million as part of an ignition switch-related settlement with the automobile company.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich (burn-o-vich) announced the settlement Wednesday.
It still requires court approval before it’s final.
In 2014, GM announced recalls of some vehicle models for faulty ignition switches that could switch to “off” or “accessory” while being driven.
If the court approves the consent decree, GM will select a claims administrator to oversee the refund process.
In order to receive a payment of at least $200, consumers must sign a release form that’ll be mailed by a claims administrator.
The payment amount would depend on the number of claimants and the alleged defects at issue for each consumer’s vehicle.
