Automaker Lies to Victims’ Families
More than five years ago, the automaker General Motors became aware of a dangerous flaw in many of the vehicles it was producing. They learned that a faulty ignition switch in hundreds of thousands of their vehicles was a hazardous and potentially fatal defect for the drivers and occupants of the affected vehicles. Because of this flaw, the vehicle may turn off while running, causing the airbags to fail to deploy in a collision and increasing the likelihood of serious injury or death. Despite this knowledge, G.M. repeatedly told families of victims and the consumers still driving the vehicles that there was no problem with the vehicles, and any claims were wholly baseless. Those statements were willful and knowing lies to the very people who had suffered a loss due to a General Motors vehicle.
GM Vehicle Recalls
The vehicles being recalled are the 2005 – 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5; the 2003 – 2007 Saturn Ion; the 2006 -2007 Chevrolet HHR; the 2005 – 2006 Pontiac Pursuit (in Canada); the 2006 – 2007 Pontiac Solstice; and the Saturn Sky vehicle.
