      GM issues six more recalls

      General Motors is issuing six more recalls covering a total of almost 718,000 vehicles in the U.S.

      The latest recalls bring the total for GM so far this year to 60, affecting a record 29.7 million cars and trucks. GM already has passed the 22 million vehicles recalled by all automakers last year.

      The biggest recall announced Wednesday was for just over 414,000 cars and small SUVs for faulty seats. Other problems include incomplete welds on seat brackets, turn signal failures, power steering failures, loose suspension bolts and faulty roof rack bolts.

      The defective vehicles include 2011-2012 model year Chevrolet Camaro, 2010-2012 model year Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain; 2011-2012 Buick Regal and LaCrosse; and 2010-2012 Cadillac SRX models. The car maker also recalled Chevrolet Sparks imported from Korea for a lower control arm bolt that was "not fastened to specification."
