Trying to prove its own safety credit ability.

America's number one automaker is dealing with a follow-up from its recall of 1.6 million vehicles.

Obviously, the bad ignitions -- 12 deaths tied into the problem.

Gm knew about it years before.

Extricate new ceo mary barra will have to go before comes to apologize and also defended gm -- next week, new ceo mary barra will have to go before comes to apologize and defended gm's city record.

We will learn from this and be a better company.

The gm engineers have done extensive analysis to make sure that if you only have the key or the key on only the ring, the vehicle is safe to drive.

When they presented this to me, the first question i ask is would you let your family, your spouse, your children drive the vehicles in this condition?

They said yes.

Mary barra arrived in the office just last month and now she has to deal with this issue.

The careful what you wish for, right?

A big deal being the ceo.

She created a commission for the sole purpose of improving gm's city record as well as its procedures.

The man she named to the decision has been a gm since the 1970's. are there any safety practices -- we are renewing our commitment to the safety to the satisfaction of our customers.

We are taking full accountability for the problems that led to this recall.

Ok, here is another question -- what can he do to help the gm improve its reputation after this recall?

First and foremost, if you look at our vehicles, a very strong safety record.

Our vehicles enjoy the recommendation of 5-stars, highway institute, top safety picks, "consumer reports" best buy.

We build on that going forward.

What we need to do is the fire process and make the processes more visible, more manageable, so that when issues are identified, we can resolve them quickly and take appropriate action with our customers.

Ok, there you have it.
