Another 2.42 million GM vehicles recalled

This brings to 13.6 million, the number of cars recalled in 2014 alone...

General Motors is recalling 2.4 million vehicles in the U.S. as part of a broader effort to resolve outstanding safety issues more quickly.

The latest action brings to 13.6 million the number of vehicles GM has recalled this year, a new record for the automaker.

The recalls announced Tuesday include 1.3 million older-model crossovers with defective front seat belts and 1 million sedans with a shift cable that can wear out.

GM is also recalling 1,400 new Cadillac Escalade SUVs with faulty air bags.

No fatalities related to the defects have been reported, GM says.

It expects to take a $400 million charge in the second quarter to repair the vehicles.

GM agreed to a $35 million federal fine last week for delays in reporting a deadly ignition switch defect.

If you're recalling 2 million cars this week, and then another 1 million cars next week- and with this trending for more than a month, then I guess its safe to assume at this point, that they rushed all their cars off the production line without proper testing and safety.
