NHTSA looking into 2 million GM vehicles

Bloomberg News (5/28, Green, Higgins, Plungis, 2.76M) reports that NHTSA is looking into issues reported by drivers concerning 2 million GM vehicles that have not yet been recalled over concerns that include “corroding brake lines and the unexpected failure of automatic braking and headlights in GM vehicles.” Jack Nerad, executive market analyst at auto researcher Kelley Blue Book, said that NHTSA is “almost certainly going to be finding more.”
        CNN’s Money (5/28) lists the top 10 auto recalls by number of cars, noting that GM’s largest recall of 2.6 million vehicles “doesn’t stack up to the biggest in history.” The list features Ford Motor Company in the top two places, including a 21 million vehicle recall in 1980 for “a problem that caused some vehicles to slip from park into reverse” that caused 6,000 accidents and 100 deaths.
