Wow did this really happen?? #GM
Two highway safety advocates on Wednesday charged that General Motors in 2001 intentionally chose an inferior design for an ignition switch installed in Chevrolet Cobalts, Saturns and other compact cars that subsequently were linked to at least 13 deaths and 31 crashes in which air bags did not deploy.
