Does your key ring need to go on a diet?

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

We're in the middle of one of the largest automotive recalls in history, resulting from faulty ignition switches in some General Motors vehicles. 

Ignition switch problems on some of the automaker's small cars are linked to at least 13 deaths, and GM has recalled 2.6 million cars since February.

Do you have one of these recalled cars?

 

All 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion, 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR, 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit (Canada), 2006-2007 Pontiac Solstice and 2007 Saturn Sky vehicles are involved in the recall.

On March 28, 2014, the recall was expanded to include the following vehicles - 2008 – 2010 Pontiac Solstice and G5; 2008-2010 Saturn Sky; 2008-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt; 2008-2011 Chevrolet HHR.





Some think that heavy weight, like may be caused by having several other keys on the key ring, pulling down on the car's switch doesn't help, and may put a strain on the switch.

So what does your key ring look like? Do you go "light," like the key ring on the left? Or a bit "heavier," like the others shown here?
