GM said it still expects to report "solid core
operating performance in the first quarter financial results."
GM said it told U.S. safety regulators it will replace lock
cylinders on the 2.2 million cars recalled in the United States
for ignition switch problems.
The automaker said it is aware of several hundred complaints of
keys coming out of ignitions while the engine is running.
GM will also replace the lock cylinders in six ignition
switch recalled models outside the United States, which total about 400,000.
