GM issues three new recalls

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WKOW) -- General Motors is recalling about 1.5 million vehicles, on the heels of a separate recall of 1.6 million vehicles for problems with an ignition switch in small cars.

The automaker issued three new recalls Monday as a result of new CEO Mary Barra's request for an internal safety review following the ignition switch recall. "I asked our team to redouble our efforts on our pending product reviews, bring them forward and resolve them quickly, " Barra said in a news release. "That is what today's GM is all about."

Here are details of the recalls:
  • 1.18 million Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia models from the 2008-2013 model years, Chevrolet Traverse from the 2009-2013 model years and Saturn Outlook from the 2008-2010 model years (due to side airbags which may not deploy)
  • 303,000 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana from the 2009-2014 model years with gross vehicle weight under 10,000 pounds (vans require a rework of the passenger instrument panel material)
  • 63,900 Cadillac XTS full-size sedan from the 2013 and 2014 model years (due to overheating brakes)

GM faces multiple investigations over its handling of the ignition switch recall. GM expects to spend $300 million in the first quarter, primarily for the cost of these new recall repairs and the ignition switch recall.
