Embattled US automaker General Motors is recalling another 2.4 million vehicles and will face an additional $200 million fine, according to CNBC.
Last week, the company disclosed it had been fined another $200 million for five previous recalls.
The most recent recalls apply to the following GM brands: Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, 2009-2014 GMC Acadia full-size crossovers, 2009-2010 Saturn Outlooks, 2004-2008 Chevrolet Malibus, 2005-2008 Pontiac G6, 2015 Cadillac Escalades and Escalade ESVs, and 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD full-size pickups.
The most recent recalls stem from problems with the vehicles’ seat belts, passenger side air bags, shift cables, and retention clips. So far, there have been no fatalities associated with these recalls.
GM has already recalled millions of vehicles because of a problem with faulty ignition switches. The company reports at least 13 people have died in crashes related to the defective switches.Sanjay Salomon can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @SanjaySalomon.
