Connecticut extends testing for recalled GM cars


WETHERSFIELD — Connecticut is extending emissions testing and waiving late fees for owners of General Motors cars being recalled.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Motor Vehicles Commissioner Melody Currey made the announcement Wednesday.

General Motors Co. has admitted knowing an ignition switch was defective at least a decade ago, but failed to start recalling 2.6 million compact cars worldwide until this year. The faulty switch has been linked to at least 13 deaths.

Malloy said the state is extending emissions’ deadlines and waiving late fees to ease the pressure on GM vehicle owners in Connecticut due to what he called an “extraordinary situation.”

The extension applies to certain Cobalts, Pontiacs and Saturns. The state says about 5,300 of the vehicles are registered in Connecticut.
