GM argues against 'park-it' order

|By:, SA News Editor

General Motors (GM) argues that vehicles recalled due to a faulty ignition switch are safe to drive until they are fixed.

The automaker is in front of a federal judge in Texas to explain why the cars should be kept on the road.

In a court filing, GM notes owners should follow recall instructions - including removing heavy items from owners' key rings.

A court-ordered recall would undermine the normal NHTSA process, argues GM.
