The bailout was a terrible idea philosophically.
Now we are seeing it was a PRACTICAL disaster too.
how long will it be before they require another bailout?

Scam with a vengeance.
How many automobiles did they actually manufacture?

A key (hole) problem,? naw. Just left front seat occupants too dense to realize that you can’t hang every key you own on the ignition switch.

That’s because GM now stands for Government Motors and now GM is just another bloated, incompetent government bureaucracy - but now one run by the unions.........

GM is officially, and permanently, off my list for new vehicles.

GM sold 9.71 million vehicles last year.
Now they have recalled more than two years of production, by the numbers.

20 million is GM’s total production for 7 years.
Exactly. If you give a business that makes crap billions of dollars, its going to produce a lot more crap.

Government Motors strikes again
Are all of those ignition switches the ones that mount under the dash, atop the steering column, and are operated via pushrods from the key "switch"?
I've had to replace three of those for reasons of simply not working -- to stopping in an "OFF" position that actually drains the battery.
For security, (difficult to "hotwire") the idea makes sense. But GM has been making the things since (at least) the 80's. You'd think they would figure out how to get them right by now...
