MILWAUKEE - "I was basically in shock that they had known for so long and hadn't done anything about it," said Amy Rademaker's mother, Margie Beskau.

New reports show General Motors may have known about a faulty ignition switch 2 years before Amy Rademaker and Natasha Weigel were killed.  They were passengers in a Chevy Cobalt that shut itself off.  The airbags did not deploy when the car crashed.
 
"Just knowing the fix could have taken care of this and two young girls would still be here today," said Natasha's step-dad, Ken Rimer.
 
Both Amy's mother and Natasha's step-dad drove gm cars before the accident.
 
"I wouldn't have driven anything else.  I couldn't by my conscience buy another one," Beskau said.
 
Now, they say they don't trust the company that put money before lives.
 
"They are looking at dollars and cents, those dollars and cents they were trying to save was my step-daughter's life.  there's no price on that," Rimer said.
