The light at the end of the tunnel for General Motors still isn’t in sight when it comes to recalls.

In an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer, GM CEO Mary Barra admitted that more recalls remain possible as the company continues to investigate into a series of safety problems that have already resulted in over 20-million vehicles recalled. Most recently, the Chevrolet Cruze was recalled for defective airbags and yesterday the company halted all sales on the 2013-2014 Cruze sedan.

“We want every single person who either lost a loved one or has a serious physical injury to be a part of that program,” Barra said in regards to the American automaker’s compensation program for victims of the ignition switch recall. Barra also reiterated that the company believes it has fired all employees that had a connection to the defective switches.

    Pure politics- I have a 2008 chevy cobalt and I am waiting 6 weeks on the recall of the ignition switch from the chevy dealer

    An auto that doesn't run is bad. One that runs and doesn't stop is dangerous to operator and other drivers! Recall and replace the corroding , rusted brake lines on GM pickups. No more " maintenance bullshit" from the likes of Alan Adler. I couldn't wait any longer for NHTSA investigation. What a farce! After I paid $778, including dealer courtesy discount of $250, they offered a $1000 GM Loyalty discount. Never another GM product!
