As the deaths are tallied from General Motors’ delayed recall of compact cars, one thing is becoming clear: Of those killed, the majority were young.
The Silverado is GM’s top-selling vehicle and an important profit center for the company. The GMC Sierra also is among GM’s top sellers.
A congressional committee is investigating the way General Motors and a federal safety agency handled a deadly ignition switch problem in compact cars.
The recall affects Chevrolet Cobalts and Pontiac G5s from the 2005 through 2007 model years.
