A bumpy road for some involved in GM's ignition switch recall.
FOX News Radio's Jennifer Keiper reports in this week's "FOX Wheels":
It's FOX Wheels.
GM has opened its checkbook, giving the government $35 million dollars for not recalling years earlier, cars with ignition problems.
That's on top of a daily fine of $7,000 dollars for missing answers on the government's recall questionnaire.
Two lawmakers think the cars should be parked.
Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx says--
(Foxx) "We do not possess the power as the Department Of Transportation to tell customers to park their cars."
Foxx says they're making sure the automaker keeps customers informed.
GM safety boss Jeff Boyer says only a single key should be used and investigators have been given 80 different terrain test results.
(Boyer) "You can see the dramatic jarring the vehicle takes from both inside and outside the vehicle in this test, and during our pothole test."
And no key movement. Repairs have started-- but Twin Cities Solsitce owner Len Cushing says it's taking too long--
(Cushing) "It's not a dealership problem. It's a GM problem that they're just not responding with parts quick enough."
The automaker recently issued six new recalls to fix brake lights, headlamps and brakes.
