General Motors recalls 3.2 million additional cars for ignition switch problems

General Motors is recalling 3.2 million more cars in the U.S. because of ignition switch problems.

The company says it will change or replace the keys on the cars from the 2000 to 2014 model years.

GM says the switches can unexpectedly move out of the "run" position if the cars are jarred, such as by going over railroad tracks or a pothole. That can shut off the engines and disable power steering.

The recall is part of a GM review of ignition switches after the company recalled 2.6 million older small cars earlier this year for a similar problem.

GM also is recalling 166,000 other cars for a series of problems.

And the company raised its expected second-quarter charge for recall expenses to $700 million.

According to WXYZ , the following cars are being recalled: 

Buick Lacrosse                           MY 2005-2009                
Chevrolet Impala                         MY 2006-2014         
Cadillac Deville                            MY 2000–2005
Cadillac DTS                                 MY 2004–2011
Buick Lucerne                             MY 2006–2011
Buick Regal LS & GS                  MY 2004–2005
Chevy Monte Carlo                      MY 2006–2008
