DETROIT (AP) - Federal investigators are looking into whether General Motors acted quickly enough to recall 1.6 million older-model small cars in a case linked to 13 deaths.

On Tuesday, GM doubled the number of cars in a recall for faulty ignition switches.

Documents show GM knew of the problem as early as 2004.

General Motors could face a fine as much as $35 million for delaying the recall.

The recall affects some older models of the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky sports cars, the Saturn Ion, Chevy HHR SUV, Chevy Cobalt and Pontiac G5.
