DETROIT - General Motors has announced more rounds of recalls, this time to 474,000 vehicles, including one on its top-selling vehicle, as the latest step in its record-breaking string of safety issues.
More than 20 million cars and trucks have been covered in the 48 recalls this year. The recalls are part of a comprehensive safety review.
One recall affects 467,00 four-wheel-drive Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, and GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. The Sierra is GM's top-selling vehicle.
A software glitch can cause the transmission transfer cases to shift into neutral on their own on 2014 and 2015 models. GM says that malfunction can cause loss of power, or allow trucks roll away if parked. GM says it knows of no crashes or injuries.
Another recall includes a problem with faulty air bag inflators in 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze sedans, GM's best-selling car in the United States. The company says the air bag inflators can fail, shooting metal pieces at the driver.
The other recalls are much smaller and also had no reported injuries. One affects Chevrolet SS and Caprice police cars with faulty windshield wiper modules. Gear teeth can become stripped, causing the wipers to fail.
In the other case, dealers will replace the two rear shock absorbers in about 2,000 2014 model year Chevrolet Corvettes with the FE1 or FE3 suspensions. An insufficient weld could lead to a fracture.
