Large demand, small supply on GM recall parts

GM's replacement for the ignition switch problem

Jim Simms is holding the small solution to General Motorsâ?? big problem.

â??Weâ??ve finally got some parts in,â?? says Simms who owns the Chevrolet dealership in Clio.

Problem is---Jimâ??s dealership doesn't have enough parts.

â??Weâ??ve got three so we're finally on our way,â?? says Simms.

Jim needs 77 more ignition switch locks.

â??Weâ??re expecting a lot more than three but Iâ??ll take everyone I can get,â?? says Simms.

Thatâ??s because patience is wearing thin for even the most loyal GM customers.

â??For me owning GM cars and also being a GM worker for years. I put confidence in them to take care of it,â?? says Delano Moore.

The Flint resident drives a Pontiac Grand Prix. His car is not on the recall list but he's still concerned.

â??Is it safe now?â?? questions Moore. â??Especially having a family or any other family member that has a GM car,â?? he adds.

GM says the cars are still safe to drive.

Meantime, dealers say the growing recall list is helping General Motors stay out front of the issues.

â??People are asking for a transparent GM and they're getting it,â?? says Simms.

While GM works on transparency, Simms is hoping more parts come in so he can get his customers back on the road.
