A defect in nearly 6 million GM cars could cause the car's engine and electrical system to shut off, and disable the air bags. For a decade, GM and government safety regulators reportedly failed to address this defect, which has been implicated in the deaths of over 300 people in crashes where the front air bags did not deploy.
It has been reported that GM could have fixed the defective switch for as little as 57 cents per vehicle.
