Extending the string of safety issues and problems, GM has announced three more recalls bringing the total to more than 20 million cars and trucks this year. This means that GM broke its own recall record of 10.75 million vehicles in 2004. This month, the company plans to identify those entitled to compensation for the ignition switch recall, and how much each recipient can expect to receive.
The compensation plan is expected to be presented by a consultant who is considered a “compensation expert.” The internationally renowned compensation strategist also helped develop compensation packages for victims of 9/11 and families who lost loved ones in the Virginia Tech shooting.
The most recent recall covers over 474,000 vehicles worldwide. After investigations, the company finally admitted that a transmission transfer can cause the vehicles to shift into neutral on their own. The ignition switch issues have resulted in loss of power as well as roll away vehicles, though GM says that it knows of known crashes or injures.
