GM recalls 2.4 million more vehicles

DETROIT — General Motors is recalling 2.4 million vehicles in the U.S. as
part of a broader effort to resolve outstanding safety issues more quickly.

The latest action brings to 13.6 million the number of vehicles GM has recalled
this year, a new record for the automaker.

The recalls announced Tuesday included 1.3 million older-model crossovers with
defective front seat belts and 1 million sedans with a shift cable that can wear
out.

GM is also recalling 1,400 new Cadillac Escalade SUVs with faulty air bags.

No fatalities related to the defects have been reported, GM says

It expects to take a $400 million charge in the second quarter to repair the
vehicles.

GM agreed to a $35 million federal fine last week for delays in reporting a
deadly ignition switch defect.
