Why is America's auto industry back despite millions of recalls?

Hosted by  • 

General Motors has begun the process of compensating victims of faulty ignition systems that led to an avalanche of auto recalls.  But, despite reports of deaths and injuries—and publicity over the recalls--GM is still America’s number one automaker and sales are at pre-recession levels.  Maryann Keller is an independent auto analyst and author of, Rude Awakening: the Rise, Fall and Struggle for Recovery of General Motors."
