According to sources, General Motors is in hot water as Congress is set to address the automaker about ignition switches that were link to over a dozens deaths and 2.6 million recalls. The big question many are asking is, “why did GM sell the cars if they knew the ignition switches could fail?”
Well, the answer will be addressed this week in a hearing before a House subcommittee tomorrow and a subcommittee with the Senate on Wednesday. Based on the outcome of the findings, Congress may strengthen a year 2000 law which will enforce strict communication between automakers and the federal government.
General Motors CEO Mary Barra will represent the company in the trials. Earlier this month, Barra reinforced to consumers the safety of future vehicles.
