The automaker announced Tuesday it will offer a $25 gift card to car owners who have a faulty ignition switch repaired, as some 1 million vehicles with the defect are thought to remain on the road.
Just 1.26 million, or 53%, of the 2.6 million GM cars recalled earlier this year have been repaired, the New York Times reports, leaving many people continuing to drive or travel in cars that can suddenly turn off or suffer from disabled steering, brakes and air bags. The defect has been linked to at least 30 deaths.
Drivers whose cars are fixed in November have a choice of $25 cards to Amazon, AMC Theaters, Applebee’s, Bass Pro Shops, Red Robin, Starbucks or Walmart.
