General Motors is recalling even more vehicles. A total 2.42 million vehicles are being recalled to fix four separate safety flaws.

GM says that this new recall is part of its "continuing effort to quickly address emerging safety issues."

Technically, this new recall is actually four separate recalls:

  • 1,339,355 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia full-size crossovers from the 2009-2014 model years and Saturn Outlooks from 2009-2010 because front safety lap belt cables can fatigue and separate over time. In a crash, a separated cable could increase the risk of injury to front seat passengers.
  • 1,075,102 of the previous generation 4-speed automatic transmission Chevrolet Malibu and from the 2004-2008 model years and Pontiac G6 from the 2005-2008 model years because of a shift cable that could wear out over time, resulting in mismatches of the gear position indicated by the shift lever.
  • 1,402 Cadillac Escalades and Escalade ESVs from the 2015 model year because of an insufficiently heated plastic weld that attaches the passenger side air bag to the instrument panel assembly that could result in a partial deployment of the air bag in the event of a crash.
  • 58 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD full-size pickups from the 2015 model year because retention clips that attach the generator fuse block to the vehicle body can become loose and lead to a potential fire.

So far, no fatalities have been associated with these recalls.
