General Motors apologizes

General Motors apologizes for sending recall notifications to the families of those people who have already died due to the ignition switch defect. The notification letter encouraged the affected owners to bring in their vehicles for repairs. It should be noted that General Motors has already recalled nearly 2,6 million vehicles (several models are included) in order to replace defective ignition switches that has caused the death of at least 13 people.

 

The  thing is that the automaker has sent recall notices to some of the 13 victims' families. GM apologized for that mistake on Tuesday. Receiving notification letters was a double suffering for the families of the victims. For example, Terri DiBattista lost her 16-year-old daughter in a Maryland accident in 2005. The vehicle involved was a Chevrolet Cobalt model that crashed into a  tree and was destroyed afterwards. The postcards containing recall information were mailed to the family at its new address, where they moved to recover from the loss they have suffered.

 

It should also be added that, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 13 fatalities resulted due to the defect. The issue still needs to be investigated further.
