Valukas report on GM’s fatal ignition switch flaws
A probe by former U.S. Atty. Anton Valukas has found a pervading atmosphere of incompetence and neglect at General Motors led the company to allow a deadly problem to fester for 11 years before anyone acted to correct it. The investigation involved more than 350 interviews with over 230 individuals at GM and its suppliers. It also reviewed more than 41 million documents to examine why the automaker waited until this year to correct the problem in about 2.6 million Chevrolet Cobalts and other small cars, mostly from the 2003 to ‘07 model years.
