    Wagoner, 56, spent eight years leading the struggling automaker.

    The GM boss came under fire for his leadership of GM late last year when US politicians debated a bailout for the automaker.

    GM is surviving on $13.4bn in US loans and is asking for more than $16bn in additional aid to survive, the Bloomberg news service reported.
