DETROIT (WKZO) -- A Dearborn man is suing General Motors over its recall of more than one-million vehicles because of problems with the ignition switch.

Sixty-one-year-old Adnan Jawad claims he's parked his 2007 Chevy Cobalt since the issue became public and is seeking more than five-million dollars for a class of plaintiffs. Jawad says he is not only concerned about the safety of the vehicle, but also the resale value.

Jawad's lawsuit is the first filed against GM in Michigan and third overall against the automaker, where a company spokesperson Wednesday described making the needed fixes as their focus.
