GM announced Monday that there will be six more safety recalls involving 7.6 million vehicles made from 1997 to 2014.
Among the recalled vehicles, GM said it is aware of seven crashes, eight injuries and three fatalities. “We undertook what I believe is the most comprehensive safety review in the history of our company because nothing is more important than the safety of our customers,” GM CEO Mary Barra said in a statement on the company’s website. “Our customers deserve more than we delivered in these vehicles.”
“We have worked aggressively to identify and address the major outstanding issues that could impact the safety of our customers,” Barra said. “If any other issues come to our attention, we will act appropriately and without hesitation.”
The latest recall brings the number of vehicles affected to over 25 million, USA Today reports. GM expects to set aside $1.2 billion in the second quarter for the cost of recall-related repairs, which includes $700 million already announced.
