Delphi now part of GM’s recall federal investigation image

Delphi Automotive, the supplier of the defective ignition switch that can be found in GM’s recalled vehicles, has become a part of the ongoing federal investigation that probes the US automaker.

Documents that were released to the public after the second hearing over GM’s ignition switch recall held by the US House Energy and Commerce Committee show that Delphi – which manufactured the faulty part in Mexico – has disclosed information to a US grand jury that also investigates the recall.

On the other hand, GM’s internal review, headed by Anton Valukas and released last month – before the second round of Congressional hearings – stated that Delphi did not let its employees take part in the investigation.

GM’s recall over the defective ignition switch has seen a batch of 2.6 million cars (there are many more millions linked to the faulty part now) being linked to at least 54 crashes and 13 fatalities. Delphi released to the federal authorities all documents that the company kept on the design and production process of the ignition switches, and said it would continue to cooperate with all agencies involved in investigations on the matter.
