General Motors has started shipping new ignition switches as part of its massive recall.
Letters are on the way to more than 1,000,000 car owners alerting them to contact dealers and arrange appointments for repairs.
Dealer service departments will replace ignition switches that may fail to meet a torque specification.
This issue could allow the switch to unintentionally move from the "run" position to the "accessory" or "off" position while the car is running.
That could lead to a crash or other dangerous situation.
The repair kits shipped by GM contain ignition switches, ignition cylinders and key sets.
