Letter to GM regarding adding same safety technology to all vehicles made and sold anywhere per UN Car Safety Regulations

CU is surprised and disappointed to learn from our consumer colleagues in Latin America of the poor performance of General Motors’ (GM) in auto safety tests conducted by the New Car Assessment Programme for Latin America and the Caribbean (Latin NCAP). These results are directly related to GM’s failure to provide the same safety technologies on cars sold in Latin America as the company provides as standard equipment in cars sold in the US market. We are specifically referring to basic safety features, such as airbags, but also newer life-saving technologies like electronic stability control and pre-tensioned seat belts, all of which are fitted as standard on GM vehicles in the US.
