10/4/14 GM recalls some Cadillac, Pontiac sedans

General Motors issues recalls affecting certain Cadillac, Pontiac and Chevrolet sedans

DETROIT (AP) -- General Motors is recalling more than 60,000 vehicles in North America, the latest round of recalls this year for the automaker.

The company outlined three new recalls Saturday, the biggest of which affects 46,873 vehicles in the U.S.

The recalls are Pontiac G8s from the 2008 through the 2009 model years and 2011-2013 model Chevrolet Caprice PPV left-hand-drive sedans imported from Australia.

The ignition switch key may shift from the "run" position when touched by the driver's knee, GM said.

The company is aware of one crash related to the problem, but no injuries.

Another U.S. recall covers over 10,005 Cadillac CTS-V sedans from the 2004-2007 model years and 2006-2007 model Cadillac STS-Vs.

On some vehicles, the fuel pump module electrical terminal may overheat, causing the flange material to melt, GM said.

That can lead to a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a stall and fire, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

GM said it knows of no crashes or injuries related to the problem.

The automaker also issued a recall for 304 of the 2014 model-year Chevrolet Sonics in the U.S., saying the vehicles may have a loose electrical connection in the steering column that could affect the performance of the driver-side air bag.

GM is not aware of any crashes, injuries related to the potential malfunction.

All told, the latest recalls included 57,182 vehicles in the U.S. and 60,575 in North America.

GM's safety problems began earlier this year with the recall of 2.6 million small cars with faulty ignition switches.

The problem caused crashes that are responsible for at least 23 deaths. GM has admitted knowing about the problem for more than a decade yet it failed to recall the cars until February of this year.
