General Motors was hit with a $35 million fine for not recalling cars with a dangerous defect for ten years.

But now, it turns out people who own those cars are having trouble getting them fixed.

Dejah Dorantes of Crockett loves her car, "Oh, it's been terrific."

But her 2007 Chevy Cobalt is one of 2.6 million vehicles recalled by General Motors because of faulty ignition switches. The switches can disengage and cause major accidents. 13 deaths have been tied to the problem.

"I'm steamed. I'm really steamed," added Dorantes.

Because what's even worse is she can't get it fixed right now.

"I called on Friday and what they told me was, the one dealership had 200 cars waiting for repair, I called another dealership and they had 300 cars," she said.
