The details for the latest set are as follows:

1,339,355 2009-2014 Buick Enclave, Chevy Traverse & GMC Acadia and 2009-2010 Saturn Outlooks.  This recall is for a cable that connects the seat belt to the seat, over time the cable can wear causing separation from the seat.  If this occurs during a crash it may increase the possibility of injury as the seat belt will no longer work properly.

1,075,102  2004-2008 Chevrolet Malibu and 2005-2008 Pontiac G6 vehicles for a transmission cable issue.  It is only for the 4 speed automatic transmission version.  The transmission cable may crack causing an inability to shift into a different gear, put the vehicle in park or remove the key from the ignition.  GM says that there has been 1 injury and 18 crashes that they are aware of directly related to this issue.

1,402  2015  Cadillac Escalades are being recalled because of a passenger side airbag issue.  It could cause an improper deployment of the airbag in a crash.  GM has told Cadillac to stop selling these Escalades until the recall has been resolved.  Customers who have already bought their brand new Escalades were informed that they are not to have anyone sit in the passenger side front seat until they have had their SUV taken care of .

58  2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks.  The recall only affects the Heavy Duty version of the trucks with the 220 amp generator.  According to GM the clips that hold the fuse block to the body can loosen causing the fuse block to move and possibly cause a fire.

The total of recalled vehicles for GM this year has now increased to over 15 million.
