GM continues to struggle with defective ignition switches on newer model vehicles

General Motors (GM) has once again announced a massive recall related to defective ignition switches, this time including more than 3 million midsize and larger vehicles. Like its earlier recall that included 2.6 million small cars, the ignition switch in these vehicles may move from the “run” position to the “off” or “accessory” position, disabling power steering and brakes during operation, also possibly deactivating the airbags. Despite a recent investigation into GM’s handling of the ignition switch recall, Beasley Allen founding shareholder Jere Beasley believes it’s now or never for GM to come clean about the extent of its problems.

“General Motors has recalled, this year alone, 20 million cars and this is a very serious problem that affects hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of cars that are still being used by the public,” Mr. Beasley said. “What they are trying to do is throw low-level engineers and lawyers under the bus, so to speak, and cover up for the big guys.”
