I still have GM cars with outstanding ignition switch recalls. We don’t keep a bunch of junk on our key rings. I’ve always advised against this.
In my opinion, once somebody sues a car manufacturer for sudden unintended acceleration or faulty ignition switches, etcetera, then people pile on trying to get some money from the deep pockets.
The first trial in the GM “deadly” ignition switch fiasco was supposed to pave the way for others. I’m not so sure it went the way the plaintiffs’ lawyers had intended.
This is the story I read today in The Detroit News by Sophia Pearson and Erik Larson, Bloomberg.
