GM Announces 6 New Recalls, 7.6 Million Cars – NBCNews.com
General Motors announced six new recalls on Monday affecting 7.6 million vehicles in the U.S. from the 1997-2014 model years. It recalled 800,000 more vehicles overseas. Among the recalled vehicles, GM is aware of seven crashes, eight injuries and three fatalities. The fatal crashes occurred in older model full-size sedans being recalled for inadvertent ignition key rotation. There is no conclusive evidence that the defect condition caused those crashes, GM said. The automaker also said that it will take a charge of up to $1.2 billion in the second quarter for recall-related repairs, including the previously disclosed $700 million for recalls already announced this quarter. General Motors has posted three dozen recalls this year for all manner of issues, affecting 20 million vehicles worldwide.
