Here’s how you’d sum up 2014 for General Motors in three words: recalls, recalls, recalls. The iconic American auto brand spent most of the year dealing with an ever-expanding recall scandal that saw CEO Mary Barra appear in front of Congress multiple times and the establishing of a $400 million-plus compensation protocol for victims of GM’s faulty ignition switches. Despite all this, though, sales were strong throughout the year, as GM rode the wave of industry-wide gains.
