On Tuesday, April 1 Mary Barra, the CEO of General Motors Co (GM), testified to a House of Representatives subcommittee about procedures surrounding GM’s recent recalls.
The oversight committee was mainly concerned with GM failing to recall the vehicles sooner. The defective GM vehicles have been linked to more than a dozen deaths. The committee members criticized Barra for not terminating an engineer who managed to hide changes to defective ignition switches. She also came under scrutiny for allowing flawed car parts to be produced and installed in vehicles.
Barra mentioned that the company will conduct an internal investigation as to why GM took so long to take action on the defects diagnosed in 2001.
