General Motors Co (GM.N) fired several employees after an internal probe into a recent recall of its Chevrolet Tavera sport-utility vehicle in India uncovered "violations of company policy," the U.S. automaker said on Friday.

"We take these matters very seriously and hold our leaders and employees to high standards," GM said in a statement. "When those standards are not met, we will take the appropriate action to hold employees accountable."

GM declined to provide more details.

Automotive News reported that Sam Winegarden, GM's vice president for global engine engineering, was dismissed this week along with about 10 other GM powertrain employees in the United States and India.

Earlier this week, GM recalled 114,000 Tavera SUVs built between 2005 and 2013.

Where was this attitude in the seventies? Japan would have been unnecessary if things were like this back then.

Anyone else astonished that GM builds and sells autos in India???

Seems kinda ironic that the model being recalled is the type "BS".
