GM 57 cent ignition switch disaster


Mary Barra faced members of the Senate yesterday in what was easily the most difficult day in Barra's three month tenure as CEO of General Motors. With 2.6 million cars being recalled due to a defective ignition switch, Senate members pressed Barra over what she knew, and when she knew it. If you believe Barra, she is still gathering all the intel she can. What about Delphi – the company whom supplied the defective part. What did they know? It's only a matter of time till Delphi, as well as other GM executives are called up to testify.

Cover-ups, months to respond to a slew of automotive defects – is the new GM the GM of old?

This certainly has been a busy few months for newly appointed CEO Mary Barra. As she tries to do her best to controll the situtation, US senators are now lining up to take a peak into the situtation. No doubt GM has worked hard turning the once defective ridden, sometimes downright ugly automotive line into the industry standard for design and quality. Its unfortunate the recent slew of recalls has cast doubt over if the new GM is still the GM of old. If the actuations that GM knew of the ignition problems in 2001 and waited till 2014 to take action are true, this would severely damage the brand it has worked so hard to repair since the 2008 auto bail out.
