Read for yourself.
In the wake of a scathing New York Times investigation published this past weekend, all hell is breaking loose over the General Motors recall of more than 1.6 million cars with faulty ignitions. We covered the scope of the mechanical failure earlier, a failure that can lead to your car turning off while you're driving it, and what to do if your vehicle falls under the recall. But the fallout is just beginning. The Times piece says that 260 incidents of ignition failures were reported to GM and to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). Now both that federal agency and the carmaker are coming under heavy fire.
Yes, this is the same GM that the administration perhaps saved from extinction. If the allegations are true, but one more example of how government should not be the one to judge which companies should live and which should die. The market should handle such decisions.
