General Motors isn't the only automaker with ignition switch problems. Chrysler is fighting it too and is now announcing a recall of 695,957 examples worldwide.
The Chinese government has released new regulations for vehicle recalls. According to Automotive News China, starting next year, automakers who fail to recall vehicles in a timely manner can expect to face fines between $80,000 and $160,000. That may be a small sum for an automaker, but the new regulations also allow the government to levy a fine of between one- to ten-percent of the total sales value of the recalled units.
