    General Motors notified customers and federal regulators of a faulty ignition switch in early February. The recall has been linked to 13 deaths and includes 2.6 million vehicles: 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion, 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR, 2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit, 2006-2007 Pontiac Solstice and 2007 Saturn Sky. GM CEO Mary Barra will address lawmakers' questions about the recall this week when she and the acting head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Association testify before Congress.Barra has apologized to GM customers in recorded videos, saying that GM intends "to make this recall as smooth as possible" and "that we not let this happen again. We will learn from this and be a better company."
