- General Motors (GM) has connected 47 crashes to small cars with faulty ignition switches, up from a prior figure of 31.
- However, GM maintained that the number of fatalities linked to the defect is 13, as it has previously argued.
- In contrast, the Highway Traffic Safety Administration reckons that "it's likely that more than 13 lives were lost."
- The independent Center for Auto Safety, a Washington-based watchdog group, said in March that it believes that 303 people were killed when airbags failed to open because of the fault.
