Family Members Not Satisfied With GM Recall

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Members of a Senate subcommittee accuse General Motors of trying to cover up problems with an ignition switch that is blamed for 13 deaths.

The members pressed General Motors CEO, Mary Barra, at the hearing Wednesday, saying they want her to commit to punishing anyone involved. Panel members are also saying GM should tell owners to stop driving all 2 million cars in the recall.

At issue is a faulty ignition switch that could cause the cars to unexpectedly shut down and disable airbags.

However, GM is advising owners that Chevrolet Cobalts and Saturn Ions are drivable as long as nothing is placed on the key chain while in the ignition.

Barra says many details Congress is seeking will emerge from an internal investigation that should be completed within 60 days.

"I agree it took way too long for this to come to the attention and so the recall. We've admitted that. We've also apologized. It is tragic there has been lives lost," said Barra.

In a private meeting, Barra heard questions from family members who were not satisfied by her answers in front of the committee. They say she still didn't give them any answers they're happy with.
