GM Recalls Another 2.7 m Vehicles in the US
General Motors said on Thursday that it has issued five more recalls, covering about 2.7 million vehicles in the United States and as a result is expected to take a charge of up to $200 million. The largest of the latest recalls covers more than 2.4 million cars for tail lamp malfunction. There are also recalls covering Chevrolet Malibu sedans, Chevy Corvette sports cars, Cadillac CTS sedans and full-size trucks and SUVs. GM did not have figures immediately for how many vehicles outside of the United States were affected by the recalls, but said the new actions were a result of the higher focus the company has put on safety issues following the recall of 2.6 million vehicles for the faulty ignition switch.
