GM announces new recalls as it continues to defend against earlier class-action lawsuits

General Motors – already facing class action lawsuits in connection with the recall of millions of cars for defective ignition switches – has announced a new series of recalls.

In the latest recalls, close to 2.7 million GM vehicles were affected, with the total for the year now reaching 11.2 million for just the United States, according to The New York Times. The total number of recalled vehicles this year, so far, worldwide, for GM is 12.8 million – with Thursday’s recalls being 2.99 million of that total.
