The results from an internal investigation looking into the untimely recall of General Motors vehicles with faulty ignition switches will be released Thursday according to the company.
GM CEO Mary Barra will lead a town-hall style meeting with employees at 9 a.m. tomorrow morning, followed by a press conference with the media. GM says that this will be an “update” on the ignition switch recall, but it is believed that Barra will share the findings from former U.S. Attorney Anton Valukas, the man hired to conduct the internal review.
An “untarnished” report on exactly why it took GM about a decade to recall defective cars that have been linked with at least 13 deaths has been promised by the American automaker.
About 2.6 million cars were affected by the ignition switch recall, which caused an internal review of GM’s safety practices, resulting in the recalling of about 15.8 million vehicles worldwide so far in 2014.
