08:35 EDTGMGM announces five safety recalls covering 2.7M vehicles
General Motors announced it has informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of five safety recalls covering about 2.7M vehicles in the United States. The recalls cover about 2.44M previous generation passenger cars for taillamp malfunctions, about 103K previous generation Chevrolet Corvettes for loss of low-beam head lamps, about 140K Chevrolet Malibus from the 2014 model year for hydraulic brake booster malfunctions, about 19K Cadillac CTS 2013-2014 models for windshield wiper failures, and 477 full-size trucks from the 2014 and 2015 model years for a tie-rod defect that can lead to a crash. The largest recall involves 2004-2012 Chevrolet Malibu, 2004-2007 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx, 2005-2010 Pontiac G6 and 2007-2010 Saturn Auras model cars in U.S. to modify the brake lamp wiring harness. GM is aware of several hundred complaints, 13 crashes and two injuries but no fatalities as a result of the condition. The company issued a technical service bulletin in 2008 and conducted a safety campaign for a small population of 2005 model year vehicles in January 2009. GM expects to take a charge of up to approximately $200M in the second quarter, primarily for the cost of recall-related repairs announced in the quarter.

A U.S. Judge has ordered General Motors to turn over internal files and documents regarding its ignition-switch flaw and how it handled the defect to plaintiff attorneys, The Wall Street Journal says. The attorneys are representing plaintiffs who have sued the auto manufacturer alleging economic loss, personal injury, and deaths related to the company's recall of older cars with the ignition-switch defect. While General Motors is protected from liabilities that occurred before its bankruptcy in 2009, the recent ruling paves the way for plaintiff attorneys to obtain records they could use in cases before and after General Motor's bankruptcy petition, The Wall Street Journal added.
