  1. General Motors Faces Criminal Inquiry Over Safety Issues

    After a long and winding road, the U.S. Justice Department has launched a criminal probe of General Motors. A House committee has ordered GM to provide answers as to the steps taken to recall unsafe cars, and prosecutors are reportedly questioning whether the auto giant misled federal regulators. GM has been plagued by a history of safety issues, including faulty ignition switches that may have contributed to 31 accidents and 13 deaths. Its recent recall of 1.6 million cars prompted federal concern, and investigators are now demanding answers.
