Auto: GM May Have To Recall 1 Million Cars!!

1 million cars as part of a recall is a big deal, even though the specific reason for it is not. GM may have to recall a total of 1 million cars including some Chevy Malibu’s, Satura Aura’s and Pontiac G6’s. The reason is so petty, but it can cause a inconvienence for drivers. The recall is because of faulty brake lamps. Will it cause any serious, or harmful crashes? Probably not. However it could be an easy reason for a police officer to pull you over and write you a ticket, or just to harass you. The models are from years 2004-2011.

Auto: GM Could Lose $918 Million In Lawsuit

Sounds like GM is about to have some problems. A judge is looking into the possibility that when GM took a buyout from the government in 2009 and had the company restructured, that a huge chunk of the money was purposely diverted to hedge fund holders.
