Incoming General Motors CEO Mary Barra told CNBC the company will take care of the embarrassing problem that's caused the recall of the new Chevrolet Silverado, which still won Truck of the Year at the Detroit Auto Show on Monday.
GM has announced the recall of 370,000 Silverados and its near-twin the GMC Sierra due to a potential fire hazard. Both trucks have received widespread kudos since being completely redesigned for the 2014 model-year.
"We're going to put the customer at the center of everything we do," Barra said on "Squawk Box" Monday. "So we found an issue. It's an issue that happens in a very cold temperature. But again, we're going to do the right thing for the customer and take care of this situation."
