DETROIT — General Motors on Friday issued six more recalls totaling more than 312,000 vehicles as the company cleans up past safety issues.
The recalls in North America pushed GM’s total for the year to 66, covering just over 29 million cars and trucks. That beats the company’s old full-year record.
The largest of Friday’s recalls covers 215,243 Saturn Vue SUVs from the 2002 through 2004 model years. GM says keys can be removed when ignitions are not in the “off” position. The problem is linked to two crashes and one injury.
Dealers will inspect the Vue ignitions and replace the cylinder if needed at no cost to customers.
