GM Will Release Recall Report On Thursday
DETROIT (AP) -- General Motors says it will release the results of an outside attorney's investigation into its mishandled recall of small cars on Thursday morning.
The company is inviting reporters to a 9 a.m. event at its technical center in the Detroit suburb of Warren.
CEO Mary Barra will lead an employee meeting to discuss the report and hold a news conference afterward.
GM has hired former U.S. Attorney Anton Valukas to investigate why it took the company more than 10 years to recall about 2.6 million small cars with faulty ignition switches. The company says the problem has caused at least 13 deaths, but trial lawyers suing GM say the toll is at least 60.
Documents show engineers in the company knew about the problem as early as 2001.
