GM adds over 8.4 million vehicles to recall list

By ,

General Motors announced on Monday that it will conduct six new safety recalls in the U.S. and Canada involving more than 8.4 million vehicles. That brings to nearly 30 million the number of units recalled by GM so far this year.

“We undertook what I believe is the most comprehensive safety review in the history of our company because nothing is more important than the safety of our customers,” said GM CEO Mary Barra. “Our customers deserve more than we delivered in these vehicles. That has hardened my resolve to set a new industry standard for vehicle safety, quality and excellence.”

GM is aware of seven crashes, eight injuries and three fatalities. The fatal crashes occurred in older model full-size sedans being recalled for inadvertent ignition key rotation. There is no conclusive evidence that the defect condition caused those crashes.
