DETROIT (WKZO) -- General Motors is recalling just over 800-thousand more cars because of faulty ignition switches.

This brings the number of total cars recalled to more than two-and-a-half million.

Older versions of those cars, along with the Saturn Ion, were recalled over the last two weeks.

Impacted are newer model Cobalts, Solstices, Saturns and others.

The recall has sparked government investigations and congressional hearings this coming week to determine why it took GM, and the government agency that oversees auto safety so long to address the issue, which was first noticed years ago.
