General Motors Corp. (NYSE:GM) on Monday announced six new recalls, affecting 7.6 million vehicles dating to 1997. The majority of recalls was due to an unintended ignition key rotation.
Recent reports linked the deaths and eight injuries with the defective ignition switches, but GM says there is no definitive way to link the two, reported Detroit News.
Some of the vehicles involved in this recall include 620,000 luxury cars, the Cadillac CTS and Cadillac SRX.
The news comes just a few hours after GM announced it will pay at least $1 million for each death linked to the faulty ignition switch that allegedly led to at least 13 deaths and over 50 accidents.
“GM wants to do the right thing, and the right thing is paying people who can document their claims, and that’s a challenge. I would not dare estimate how many deaths or how many injuries until people file their claim and we evaluate the claim,” Kenneth R. Feinberg, a compensation expert hired by GM, said at a press conference on Monday.
GM has recalled a total of more than 25 million vehicles in 2014. A list of affected vehicles for the most recent recall can be viewed below.
