WASHINGTON, April 11 (Reuters) - A top official with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration told General Motors in a 2013 email that the automaker is "slow to communicate, slow to act" on defects and recalls.

"The general perception is that GM is slow to communicate, slow to act, and, at times, requires additional effort of ODI that we do not feel is necessary with some of your peers," Frank Borris, head of NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation, said in a July 2013 email to GM.
