GM recalls 8.45 million vehicles including ignition fixes

General Motors Co. (GM), which has already called back more than 20 million cars in North America for various fixes this year, recalled 8.45 million more today for defects including ignitions and electrical malfunctions.

Most of them, 8.23 million including Chevrolet Malibus from 1997 to 2005 and Cadillac CTS cars from the 2003 to 2014 model years, are being recalled for unintended ignition-key rotation. Among the vehicles recalled today, GM said it’s aware of seven crashes, eight injuries and three fatalities. The fatal crashes occurred in older full-size sedans being recalled for the ignition flaw.
