DETROIT (AP) — General Motors says it has made progress in fixing its recall website so that it correctly lists all the cars that need recall repairs.

The company said Monday that it expects the site to be fully corrected this week.

The government said Friday that GM's vehicle identification number look-up system has been incorrectly telling some owners that their cars aren't being recalled. That happened when the cars' parts weren't available. But the government says all recalls should be listed.

GM has recalled 29 million vehicles this year. It disclosed in February that it took more than a decade to recall small cars with faulty ignition switches.

Starting Aug. 20, all automakers must have systems that allow owners to search recall information by vehicle number.
