April 2 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg’s Ryan Chilcote recaps General Motors CEO Mary Barra’s Capitol Hill testimony on a delayed auto recall and how it may impact GM sales going forward on Bloomberg Television’s “The Pulse.”

100 days of mary barra, they will look at what she says today and yesterday.

She said two things that she got grilled by the senators and congressmen.

One is that she will get to the bottom of what happened.

Not sure how it is that they did not recall these parts and she said she will -- she has already appointed ken feinberg to take care of that.

A lot of people are watching opel and see that the losses are narrowing.

The head of gm in europe wants to break even in two years.

That is one expensive olive, buying a car to try something different.
