Transcript: Terry DiBattista’s press briefing remarks on GM’s ignition switch recall – April 1, 2014

Partial transcript of press briefing remarks by Terry DiBattista on GM’s ignition switch recall on April 1, 2014:

Good afternoon. My name is Terry DiBattista. We helped my daughter, Amber, pick out her 2005 Chevy Cobalt because of its highly rated safety features.

Now, we know that GM was aware of the fact that there were problems with the ignition switch before the car was even available to the public and that the problem would result in airbags not deploying and protecting her.

I feel that GM needs to be held accountable to the public for the deadly and tragic consequences allowing these deadly switches to be used.

I believe it is necessary for the Department of Justice to conduct a criminal investigation to determine if there is culpability by GM, who inside the company should be held responsible.

It is my sincere hope that there will be changes made to the law in order to prevent other families from experiencing our tragedy. It is clear that GM is only concerned with their bottom line and not the safety of our loved ones.
