Quotes

—The agency's Chief of the Defects Assessment Division had a conversation with GM personnel in 2007 about Cobalt airbag failures, but " he did not ask the GM officials to look into the issue or provide any documents and he did not recall any follow-up with them after this discussion."

"There can be no doubt that GM took advantage of a weak and timid agency and ran rough shod over even NHTSA's most meger attempts to insist safety come first."
