    107 Questions For GM To Answer Over Ignition Recall


    • NHTSA Issues 107 Questions To GM Over The Ignition Switch Recall


    General Motors' problems with the 1.6 million vehicle recall over a faulty ignition switch are growing. This week, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has sent a 27 page document with 107 questions asking about the recall and the timeline. Questions range from how the investigation process on the ignition "was not as robust as it should have been" to when GM decided to start investigating crashes with the 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and 2007 Pontiac G5 where the air bag did not deploy.

    NHTSA has also requested documents ranging from complaints from owners to lawsuits involving GM vehicles in the recall.

    "We are a data-driven organization, and we will take whatever action is appropriate based on where our findings lead us," NHTSA said in a statement.

    "In addition to getting NHTSA the information they need, we are doing what we can now to ensure our customers' safety and peace of mind. We want our customers to know that today's GM is committed to fixing this problem in a manner that earns their trust," said GM in a email statement to Automotive News.

    General Motors has until April 3rd to comply with the document.
