Five new separate recalls for General Motors announced

Toyota has lost its crown as the “recall king” as the North American based automotive giant General Motors has issued five more recalls for separate problems, covering 2.7m cars.

Things at General Motors are going from bad to worse as five new separate recalls have been announced by the company. The biggest one includes 2,440,524 units of the Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Malibu Maxx, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Auras. This has been issued because of a problem with the taillamp caused by corroded wiring harnesses.

This can also affect the panic braking assist, the traction control, electronic stability control and cruise control. The recall affects the 2004-1201 Malibu, 2004-2007 Malibu Maxx, 2005-2010 G6 and 2007-2010 Aura. GM is currently aware of 13 crashes and 2 injuries related to this issue, but no fatalities have been recorded.

The second recall affects 140,067 units of the Chevrolet Malibu from the 2014 model year, equipped with the 2.5L engines and the stop/start technology. These vehicles have a problem in the hydraulic brake booster and it seems that no crashes have been recorded.

The third recall is affecting 111,889 units of the 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvette, because of the loss of low-beam headlight operation. A few hundred complaints have been received but, again, no crashes or injuries have been related to the issue.

The fourth recall is “aimed” towards the Cadillac CTS, in 19,225 units, from the 2013-2014 model year, because of the windshield wiper system, which may go bust after the car will jump start with wipers active and restricted. The fifth and final recall involves 477 units of the 2014 Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra and the 2015 Chevy Tahoe for a defective tie rod, which can separate from the steering rack.
