GM argues against 'park-it' order

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.

    Imperial arrogance?


    GM instructs owners of recalled cars what to do,
    but offering zero compensation?


    Such a stance, if I know anything about Texans, won't cut much ice
    in a Texas court room, IMO.

    A friend of mine has a Cobalt with 157,000 miles on it and he is still driving the car. Let the owners make the decision if they want to drive the cars. GM will give them a rental car free of charge if they do not feel safe about driving their car. Less government and courts, the better. Let the people decide!
