GM is recalling 686,000 Lambda-platform crossovers to fix a problem that can cause the power hatchback to fail. The campaign affects the 2008-2012 Buick Enclave, 2009-2012 Chevrolet Traverse, 2007-2012 GMC Acadia, and 2007-2010 Saturn Outlook.


Secondary Recall Affects 50,000 Sparks, Sonics

General Motors is recalling 521,817 vehicles worldwide in two separate campaigns. One covers a problem with the seat belts in the Chevy Malibu, and the other is a possible manufacturing error for the seats on the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon.


Cars from General Motors are having steering issues, but neither the company nor governmental safety regulators, see a point in issuing a recall.


GM is recalling 64,186 examples of the 2011-2013 Volt because carbon monoxide can build up if the plug-in hybrid sedan is accidentally left idling in an enclosed location. Separately, the company is issuing a stop sale on roughly 2,300 units of the 2015 Chevrolet Trax and 2015 Buick Encore because of possible power steering failure.


GM is announcing two recalls to align its vehicles with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. One covers the moonroof controls for the Cadillac ATS, and the other controls the electronic parking brake for the Chevy Impala.


GM is following up its Lambda-platform CUV stop-sale for possible cracks in their 18-inch Goodyear Fortera HL tires with a recall covering 5,876 examples of the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave. Goodyear already recalled about 48,512 of the tires.


GM has issued a stop-sale on a number of its Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave crossovers following a pending recall by tire supplier Goodyear.


General Motors has announced a recall covering 316,357 vehicles globally, due to the possibility of sporadic or permanent failure of the low-beam headlamps. 273,182 of these vehicles are in the United States, while the remaining affected units are in Canada, Mexico, and elsewhere.


Is your vehicle under recall?

It seems General Motors can't go more than a few weeks without issuing a major recall. Since the initial ignition lock recall on February 10, over 25 million vehicles have been recalled for defects.


The recall affects 2,432 vehicles, though only 138 had actually reached consumers.


Following a stop-delivery order for its new midsize trucks and a rash of recent recalls, General Motors is issuing three more campaigns covering 60,575 vehicles in North America with 57,182 of them in the US. As of October 1, the automaker has issued a total of 74 recalls (see the ridiculously long chart to the right) this year covering 26,495,070 units in the US.


Just hours after confirming to Autoblog its intention to recall 97,540 vehicles in the US (117,651 in North America) for a possible manufacturing defect in the chassis control module of several models, General Motors is issuing two more campaigns that affect another 379,401 units in the US (524,384 in North America).


General Motors has issued a stop-sale to dealers and has notified the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration of its intention to recall 117,000 vehicles in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Of those vehicles, only 4,500 are at dealerships.


Back in April, General Motors launched an investigation into braking issues affecting the 2014 Chevy Impala. Now there's a recall of both the Impala and the Cadillac XTS with which it shares its Epsilon II platform.
