The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an investigation of the cars’ power steering (General Motors) in January after receiving more than 1,100 complaints, including reports of 14 crashes and one injury. But the new recall, while large, is unlikely to hurt G.M. the way Toyota has been damaged by its recalls, in part because G.M. says the cars can be safely controlled and the problem has not resulted in any serious injuries or deaths.There is that...and...well...G.M. doesn't have to participate in a dog an pony show before a congressional commission made up of interrogators who took in significant campaign cash from the United Auto Workers Union.
