Former General Motors CEO: No one knew depth of problems

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Former General Motors CEO Dan Akerson admits no one at the automaker in leadership realized the depth of the problems with the company's corporate culture.

Akerson tells the "Detroit News" that he feels a good foundation was built when he was hired by the federal government to run the automaker in 2009, and adds he thinks he may have escaped the scrutiny from Congress now faced by CEO Mary Barra. He said the recall of nearly 2.6-million GM cars for ignition switch problems linked to 13 deaths will not be forgotten by the industry for decades.
