DETROIT -- General Motors is racking up daily fines in the federal investigation into its botched ignition switch recall.
Federal officials say the automaker is late in handing over documents requested for the investigation. GM is being fined $7,000 a day until all of that information is received.
A letter from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says GM was given a deadline of April 3 to deliver the government requested paperwork involving the recall of 2.6 million vehicles.
GM released a statement saying it has handed over thousands of documents and will continue to provide documents with the "goal of being accurate as well as timely."
