General Motors (GM) issued a massive recall of ignition switches on several of its models this past February. The faulty switches, which are found in 17.3 million GM vehicles, caused safety mechanisms, like air bags, to deploy. These malfunctions caused at least 13 deaths and more than 50 accidents. The recall has earned the attention of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which has fined the company $35 million for concealing the ignition switch problems. The U.S. Senate is also investigating the automaker.
