Description

When General Motors announced it was recalling 750,000 cars in February for an ignition defect, it could have been treated like just another case of a big automaker bringing cars in to fix a minor mechanical glitch. But when CBS News began investigating, it quickly became clear this was something else. We were the first to report GM knew there was the potential for the cars to shut off involuntarily, at least 8 years before the recall, and that three accidents were the subjects of three special investigations ordered by NHTSA.
