31 Deaths from GM Ignition Switch Turning to the OFF POSITION Because of Multiple "Jarring Forces."
Air bags didn't deploy because the ignition switch shut the power off.
The stiff suspension results in over 200 "jarring, shock-loads" per minute. These repetitive "jarring, shock-loads"
shake the human body in excess of 1 Million times a month for a normal driver. They cause organs and joints in the
human body to bounce and clash into one another resulting in degenerative back disease, fibromyalgia, hip joint
replacements, L-3, L-4, L-5 ruptured disc and fusion repairs, neck disc collapse-rupture, depression, upset
stomachs, nausea, inflammation throughout the body, vertebrae shifting out of position in the back, and our latest
discovery is the horrible shaking of the unborn child by compression and jerking of the nerve cluster at the base of
the brain and spinal column...which strongly indicates the cause of autism. More of autism cause in Module 4
Vehicle suspensions need to be made to a softer ride, like the Chevrolet, Caprice Classic of the 80's.
Mercedes-Benz realized this problem and changed their suspension to prevent these problems..see their video at this link

DETROIT (Reuters) - General Motors Co on Tuesday more than doubled a recall, mostly in North America, to
correct a condition that may allow the engine and other components including airbags to be unintentionally turned
GM said it is aware of 31 reported incidents, including 13 front-seat fatalities, involving frontal crashes in
which the condition may have caused or contributed to the front airbags not deploying.
In expanding the recall to 1,620,665 vehicles in the United States, Canada and Mexico and a small number
overseas, the No. 1 U.S. automaker also said it would review its recall process. It had previously recalled almost
"The process employed to examine this phenomenon was not as robust as it should have been," GM's North
American head, Alan Batey, said in a statement. "We will take an unflinching look at what happened and apply
lessons learned here to improve going forward." GM said it submitted a detailed chronology associated with the
initial recall to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday.
All of the crashes occurred off-road and at high speeds, where the probability of serious or fatal injuries was high
regardless of airbag deployment, a company spokesman said. Failure to wear seat belts and alcohol use also were
factors in some cases, the spokesman said.
The Detroit company previously said the weight on the key ring, road conditions or some other
jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the "run" position, turning off the engine
and most of the car's electrical components.
Earlier this month, GM said it was recalling 778,562 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 compact cars from model
years 2005 through 2007.
On Tuesday, GM added 842,103 Saturn Ion compact cars from 2003 through 2007 model years, Chevy HHR mid-
sized vehicles from 2006 and 2007, and the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky sports cars from 2006 and 2007. GM
no longer makes any of the affected cars.
The automaker said it is working with suppliers to increase production of replacement parts and accelerate the
process. Batey said GM would work with consumers on a case-by-case basis to minimize inconvenience associated
with the recall.
Dealers will replace the ignition switch at no charge, but GM advised that until the fix is made, customers should
remove nonessential items from their key rings.
GM said the ignition switch torque performance may not meet company specifications. The involved parts were
made in Mexico, according to documents previously filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Of the new recalled total, 1,367,146 vehicles are in the United States, 235,855 are in Canada, 15,073 are in Mexico
and 2,591 were exported outside North America, according to GM.

Todays rack-n-pinion steerings and
stiff suspensions cause our present
muscle-skeletal injuries and autism.
The type of soft suspension and
steering, as shown in this picture, does
not result in autism, muscle/skeletal
injuries, chronic back pain, hip,
shoulder, wrist, knee, ankle
replacements, back-neck op's, etc.
