GM Official Says They’re Kinda, Sorta, Almost Probably Done Recalling Cars

Over the past nine months General Motors has recalled nearly 30 million vehicles for one reason or another, and it doesn’t sound like the car manufacturer is quite done.

According to a report from Bloomberg, GM CEO Mary Barra says the car company is “substantially completed” its vehicle recalls.

Barra, who has been questioned multiple times by federal regulators and at congressional panels since recalls began early this year, says the company won’t hesitate to issue future recalls.

“We’re working hard to make sure that as new vehicles come out, they achieve even higher levels” of quality and safety, Bloomberg reports.

General Motors first came under scrutiny early this year when it an ignition switch defect was uncovered in millions of compact vehicles. Things only got worse when it was revealed that officials at GM knew about the potential issues, which killed at least 13 people – but likely many more – years before the recall was initiated.

Since then GM has been on a recallapalooza, issuing multiple million-vehicle recalls. And according to Barra, there could be more in the future.

“We’ve really benchmarked externally the aerospace industry, the nuclear industry, the industries that require a true zero-defect mentality,” Barra said. “But if at any point of time, we learn there’s an issue, we’re going to put the customer in the center, and we’re going to take care of the issue and if that means a recall, we’ll do a recall.”
