General Motors Co has announced it is recalling 1.5 million vehicles, and in a virtually unprecedented public admission by a GM chief executive, Mary Barra acknowledged the company fell short in catching faulty ignition switches linked to 12 deaths, Reuters has reported. “Something went wrong with our process in this instance, and terrible things happened,” she told employees in a video message posted online. In the last two months, GM has recalled more than 3.1 million vehicles in the US and other markets. The latest recalls cover more than 1.5 million newer crossover utility vehicles, luxury sedans and full-size vans. While there were reports of engine compartment fires in two dealer-owned Cadillac XTS sedans, the company said it has received no reports of accidents or injuries related to the three new recalls.
