GM will compensate them in an agreement with the Justice Department not to prosecute within 90 days. The fact is they are shielded but will pay anyway for goodwill. it's ultimately in their best interest to do so.
Well GM "IS" offering the victims a $500 discount on a New GM vehicle, what a magnanimous gesture to those grieving families. With this compensation adjuster Finburgh or Finestine (or what's his name) in GM's pocket, in a month it will just be another motor vehicle corporation "Dead" issue.
Sad but true. This is no more an American company than KIA. I have an 04 Silverado truck with more rust than most anything from 20 years ago. Toyota fessed up and payed the price for garbage frames. Make these bastids do the same.
