Outraged at GM

AtascaderoApril 4, 2014 

In the past few days, I have noticed that General Motors has been having a hard time keeping its cars on the road. GM said Monday that it is recalling 1.3 million vehicles in the United States. The recall is for the electronic power-steering assist.

This recall comes as another surprise after the ignition switch recall. That defect is linked to 13 fatal ities. I am simply outraged that GM cannot keep the equipment on its cars up to specifications.

Also, it is not fair that people have to lose their lives as a result of this mistake. There is also the fact that there are consumers out there who still have these cars and do not know it. This is a ticking time bomb for them and the ones whom they drive with.
