General Motors is recalling 2.4 million more cars to deal with safety issues, bringing the total recall number to 13.6 million cars this year.

13.6 MILLION CARS!  AND IT'S NOT EVEN JUNE YET!

The latest recall is part of a bigger effort to resolve safety issues more quickly, after GM agreed to a $35 million federal fine last week for delays in reporting a deadly ignition switch defect.

The recall details include:

  • 1.3 Million older-model crossovers with defective front seat belts.
  • 1 Million sedans with a shift cable that can wear out.
  • 1,400 new Cadillac Escalade SUVs with faulty air bags.
  • UPDATE:  218,000 Chevy Aveo's have been added due to a daytime running light in the dashboard that can overheat and possibly catch fire.

Luckily there have been no reported deaths due to the latest round of safety issues.  Owners of the affected vehicles should expect to see notices in the mail shortly.
