GM named John Quattrone to replace Howell. No replacement has been named for Bingol.

The company is struggling with a series of embarrassing recalls, including 2.6 million small cars worldwide due to a faulty ignition switches. GM says at least 13 deaths have been linked to the ignition switch problem. Family members of those killed say the death toll is much higher.
