It seems that recalls will never stop for General Motors. The famous car maker has just announced the recall of more than 718,000 vehicles in the United States.
General Motors made the official announcement on the recall on Wednesday. In this new recall there are included car models such as Chevrolet Camaro from 2011 to 2012, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain, from 2010 to 2012, as well as 2011-2012 Buick Regal and LaCrosse. The recall also includes 2010-2012 Cadillac SRX models.
Apparently, the reason why GM has announced this recall now is linked to a loose bolt in the power height front seat adjuster, which has caused some injuries so far. Still, GM said that there were no deaths linked to this issue.
General Motors also announced the recall of Chevrolet Sparks, for a lower control arm bolt which was not fastened to specification, the company claimed. In this recall are included the cars that were imported from Korea. GM claimed that they know of no accidents linked to this issue. However, this can be a serious problem which may lead to the loss of steering control.
With this latest recall, the number of cars that have been recalled by GM has reached 30 million vehicles. GM started the recall of its cars linked to various problems at the beginning of this year. Since then, the number of recalled cars has grown amazingly. This has definitely brought a lot of criticism to GM, which claimed that the company is now very interested in the safety of its clients.
This year, GM has recalled more than half the vehicles recalled by the industry as a whole. Most of the company’s vehicles had been linked to the ignition switches problem. Actually, failing to react in this problem as fast as discovered, has brought GM a series of critics, but also a record fine. It has been revealed that the famous car maker knew about the issue for no less than a decade. 13 deaths have been linked to this problem, so far. General Motors has announced a program to pay no less than $1 million to each of the victims.
