General Motors (GM) announced a major recall this morning (March 18) of several SUV models and sedans, but stated there have been no known injuries reported as this time according to reports.

Included in the recall are the following models: Buick Enclave (2008-13), GMC Acadia, Chevrolet Traverse (2009-13) and the Saturn Outlook (2008-2010) in the SUV range of vehicles. These vehicles could possibly have faulty wiring for the seat-mounted side airbags.

These models are equipped with a warning light that reads, "Service Air Bag," which if ignored when light is on, could cause for non-deployment of the airbags if vehicle is hit on the side.

A second recall from GM covers the Cadillac XTS sedans and includes 64,000 vehicles of the 2013-2014 models for a potential problem with overheating of the brakes which has caused two known fires.

Third, GM vans are being recalled to fix a problem on the instrument panel by replacing the material there to make it safer for impact in case passengers are not buckled up and involved in an accident. This recall covers approximately 303,000 vehicles, including the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans, of which the later is normally used for commercial work.

GM recently recalled 1.6 million vehicles for faulty ignition switches which dates all the way back to 2004 models.

Consumers who own one of the above mentioned recalled vehicles should check with their local GM dealer to schedule repairs.
