General Motors is recalling nearly 1.2 million crossovers for defective side air bags.
   
GM also announced smaller recalls Monday of commercial vans and Cadillac sedans amounting to about 364,000 vehicles for separate problems.
   
The new recall comes as GM is facing multiple investigations over its handling of a recall of more than 1.6 million small cars for defective ignition switches.
   
The company says it expects to spend approximately $300 million in the first quarter to repair the vehicles in the new recalls as well as the vehicles in the ignition recall.
   
The company said Monday it's recalling the crossovers, including the Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia, because their side air bags might not deploy.

Affected are: 

- Some 2008-2009 and all 2010-2013 Buick Enclaves and GMC Acadia crossovers

- Some 2009 and all 2010-2013 Chevrolet Traverses

- Some 2008-2009 and all 2010 Saturn Outlooks

- 303,000 2009-2014 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans that are rated to carry up to 10,000 pounds including the vehicle's own weight

- 63,900 of the 2013 and 2014 Cadillac XTS sedans

Most of the vehicles were sold in the United States, but some are in Canada and Mexico.
