GM ignition-flaw death toll seen rising as victims sought

Posted: March 14, 2014 at 11:25 a.m.

NEW YORK — The death toll related to an ignition flaw in eight small-car models that General Motors sold a decade ago is likely to climb, say lawyers and safety advocates.

Automakers often make upward revisions to fatality figures related to recalls as they unearth fresh information.

GM, which said it has identified 12 deaths in connection with the recall of 1.6 million models made in the mid-2000s — including some Chevrolet Cobalts and HHRs and other Opel, Pontiac and Saturn models — has said it continues to review data and information related to the recall.
