Documents raise doubts
about GM’s forthrightness regarding ignition switch problem.
The New York Times (7/16, A1, Ruiz, Ivory,
Subscription Publication, 9.65M) reports that GM’s response to Federal
authorities investigating a fatal crash of a Saturn Ion, along with “its
replies to queries in other crashes obtained by The New York Times from the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, casts doubt on how forthright
the automaker was with regulators over a defective ignition switch that G.M.
has linked to at least 13 deaths over the last decade.” The documents show that
GM “repeatedly found a way not to answer the simple question from regulators of
what led to a crash.” In at least three cases, the company “said that it had
not assessed the cause.” In another, it said that “attorney-client privilege
may have prevented it from answering.” In others, it simply said, “G.M. opts
not to respond.”
