This Sunday, Nov. 19, 2006 photo shows unsold 2006 Ion coupes outside a Saturn dealership in the south Denver suburb of Highlands Ranch, Colo. According to government documents released Saturday, April 19, 2014, General Motors waited years to recall nearly 335,000 small cars for power steering failures despite getting thousands of consumer complaints and more than 30,000 warranty repair claims. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the government’s auto safety watchdog, didn’t seek a recall of the Saturn Ion compact car from the 2004 through 2007 model years even though it opened an investigation more than two years ago, and even though it found 12 crashes and two injuries caused by the problem. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski)DETROIT (AP) — General Motors waited years to recall nearly 335,000 Saturn Ions for power steering failures despite getting thousands of consumer complaints and more than 30,000 warranty repair claims, according to government documents released Saturday.

Pope Francis (C) holds a candle during the Easter Vigil at the St Peter basilica in Vatican on April 19, 2014Pope Francis on Saturday called on Catholics to bring the message of God "to the very ends of the earth" during an Easter vigil mass in St Peter's Basilica. Francis said the core of the Easter message was about returning to the basics of faith and asking: "Have I gone off on roads and paths which made me forget it?" The message reiterates his previous calls for a Roman Catholic Church that is closer to ordinary people, more international and less "Vatican-centric". The mass wrapped up a series of Vatican ceremonies leading up to Easter Sunday -- the holiest day in the Christian calendar, which celebrates the belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
