The majority of the most recent rounds of recalls announced today include 946,817 SUVs including 2002-2004 model-year Chevy Trailblazers, GMC Envoy XL and 2004 Buick Rainiers for a faulty rear brake and turn lights that could prevent turn signals from working altogether. Considering how many people willingly do not use their turn signals or brakes this doesn't seem so bad. But that's just the largest of the recalls. 204,317 2003 model-year Chevy Malibu's, Oldsmobile Aleros and Pontiac Grand Ams are being recalled for sticky accelerators that cause the cars to continue speeding. Not good. Two other recalls involve the economy 2003 Chevy Cavalier and Pontiac Sunfire and high-end 2004-2005 Cadillac XLR and Chevy Corvette. The Cavalier and Sunfire report similar turn signal issues as the SUVs while the Vette and XLR have potentially leaky brake lines. At least GM got these all out of the way at one. The grand total for GM recalls this year has now reached 10.47 million vehicles. In 2003 they had 7.8 million. Two more months to go in 2004 guys, can you double last year?
