GM Canada target of lawsuit by parents of 2012 accident victim

General Motors Canada is in the crosshairs of a lawsuit from the parents of an Ontario man who lost his life while behind the wheel of a 2006 Saturn Ion. The parents of the accident victim are taking part in a national class action suit over malfunctioning parts and systems. They contend that their son's airbag did not inflate on impact, leading to his death in a head-on collision in 2012. GM recently ordered worldwide recalls regarding faulty ignition switches and power steering defects in several models, including the Ion.
