I read with interest the article by Jerry Hirsch of the Los Angeles Times titled “19 killed by GM ignition switches” (Page C1, Sept. 16).

The favorite argument of General Motors is that the GM of the 1980s or 1990s is not the GM of today. But it is the same GM. Nothing has changed.

The same “we don’t care for the consumer; only the sale of cars is important” stance prevails. Safety goes out the window when it comes to selling cars.

The same attitude holds true for all American car manufacturers. Nothing has changed except TV advertising.
