通用公司为维修再召回150万辆汽车

2014-03-20    来源:voanews    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

The biggest U.S. automaker, General Motors, is recalling another 1.5 million vehicles for repairs, pushing the company's recall total to more than 3 million in the last month.
美国最大汽车制造商通用汽车公司因故障维修正在召回150万辆汽车。加上已经召回的160万辆汽车,该公司上个月召回的汽车超过300万辆。

In a video message to GM workers, chief executive Mary Barra vowed to change the company culture and deal quicker with auto manufacturing defects. The latest recall involves concerns about brakes, seat belts and air bags on several recent models, including sport utility vehicles, vans and top-of-the-line Cadillac sedans.
通用汽车公司的首席执行官玛丽•芭拉(Mary Barra)在对员工讲话的视频里宣布要改变公司文化,并加快处理汽车制造中的缺陷。公司这一次召回是出于对几种最新车型在刹车、安全带和气囊三项问题上的担忧,这些车型包括运动型多用途跑车、面包车以及顶级的凯迪拉克轿车。

GM, the world's second biggest automaker behind Japan's Toyota Motors, recalled 1.6 million older models in February for defective ignition switches that shut down vehicles while they were being driven, disabling the airbags.
通用汽车公司是仅列于日本丰田汽车之后的世界第二大汽车制造商。该公司在今年二月因引擎开关故障而召回160万辆旧型汽车,这一故障会导致汽车在行驶时熄火,并使气囊无法打开。

GM has linked the ignition switch defect to 12 deaths in crashes, while a Washington auto safety group alleges that more than 300 people have been killed in accidents because of the problem. GM knew of the ignition switch problem as far back as 2001, and Barra says that company delays in dealing with the problem are unacceptable.
通用汽车已承认引擎开关故障和12例因车祸导致的死亡有关。然而,华盛顿的一个汽车安全小组宣称已有超过300人在该故障造成的事故中死亡。事实上,通用汽车在2001年已经发现引擎开关问题,却迟迟没有采取相应措施。芭拉称公司没有及时处理该问题的行为不可接受。

"Something went wrong with our process in this instance and terrible things happened." She said GM "will be better because of this tragic situation if we seize the opportunity" to deal with manufacturing problems as they are discovered.
芭拉说:“在这一事件里,公司程序出现问题,并引发糟糕后果。”芭拉还说“假如我们能在这次悲剧中抓住机会”,妥善处理所发现的制造问题,通用会变得更好。

General Motors said it expects to spend about $300 million in the first quarter this year to make repairs on all the recalled vehicles.
通用汽车公司表示将在今年的第一季度花费大约3亿美元来修理所有被召回的汽车。(voanews)
