Another week, another General Motors recall. GM has issued four new recalls that encompass 2.42 million cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks. For those keeping score, the automaker has issued recalls on over 13 million vehicles so far this year.

The latest wave includes:

  • 1,339,355 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and 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 2004-2008 Chevrolet Malibu and 2005-2008 Pontiac G6 cars with a four-speed automatic transmission 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 an insufficiently heated plastic weld that attaches the passenger side air bag to the instrument panel assembly could result in a partial deployment of the air bag in the event of a crash. These SUVs are subject to a stop sale, and the automaker has reached out to the 224 customers.
  • 58 of the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD full-size pickups because retention clips attaching the generator fuse block to the vehicle body can become loose and lead to a potential fire.

GM notes that there have been no fatalities associated with these recalls.

Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-222-1020 for more information.
