Owners of General Motors vehicles should be aware that a recent flurry of recalls could last into the summer.

The automaker is in the process of reviewing a number of unresolved safety issues with its products.

So far this year, GM has recalled 13.8-million vehicles in North America; more than five times the number of cars it sold in the last five years.

Barclays Capital analyst Brian Johnson met with GM management this week and was told by the company's product development boss, Mark Reuss, that the safety review is ongoing so recalls could persist until late in the summer and it's possible some vehicles already recalled this week could be part of future recalls.

The news comes as Toyota recalls thousands of Sienna minivans because of corrosion problems.
