Even as General Motors struggles to catch up with the recall repairs it has already ordered, the maker is apparently getting ready to announce still more safety-related callbacks in the weeks and months ahead, cautions a new analyst’s report.
During a meeting with senior GM officials this week, analysts from Barclays were advised that the fast pace of safety-related actions could continue through at least mid-summer. And along with more near-term recalls, GM is taking steps at a senior management level that could lead to longer-term changes in its safety operations.
“It is tough to say if recalls from past vehicles has already peaked, as the team has not yet completed mining the data,” it has been gathering, lead Barclays analyst Brian Johnson wrote following the meeting in Detroit. “Also, given the data-mining is being conducted on an issue by issue, and not on a make and model-year basis, it is possible that GM may issue further recalls for vehicles which have already been recalled.”
