GM recalls 718,000 more vehicles in US as car safety scandal rolls on


NEW YORK — General Motors (GM) Wednesday announced six recalls covering nearly 718,000 vehicles in the U.S., adding to its recall tally after an ignition-switch auto safety scandal. The largest recall announced Wednesday, affecting 414,333 vehicles, will address a problem with the bolt that secures the height adjustor for driver and passenger seat structures in the 2010-2012 Chevrolet Camaro, the 2011-12 Buick Regal and some other models. If the bolt falls out, the seat will move up and down freely, GM said. GM is aware of one crash and three injuries, but no fatalities because of the problem.

GM said it was also recalling 57,242 model-year 2014 Chevrolet Impalas because of a problem with the power steering system. Affected cars can lose power steering because of an issue with the electrical connection to the system. GM said it is aware of one crash, but no injuries or fatalities due to the condition.
