GM announces 3 more recalls: 1 million SUVs

Don't Waste Your Money

GM is taking heat over its handing of the Chevy Cobalt recall , which federal investigators says is responsible for at least a dozen deaths and possibly many more.

Critics say an earlier recall could have saved lives.

So it is now announcing 3 more recalls, involving more than a million SUV's, cars, and vans, possibly to avoid some of the same criticism.

Some of its most popular vehicles, the Chevy Traverse and GMC  Acadia, as well as some Cadillacs, are part of this recall

The latest on the recall list:

SUV Recall

          -2009 - 2013 Chevy Traverse
          -2008 -2010 Saturn Outlook
          -2008 - 2013 Buick Enclave

The side airbags may not deploy in a crash.

Cadillac Recall

    -2013-2014 Cadillac XTX: Brakes can overheat and start a fire.

Full Size Van Recall

    -2009 - 2014 Chevy Express and GMC Savana vans: another airbag issue

More Problems With Earlier Recall

Meantime, some owners of Chevy Cobalts and Saturns that are part of last month's massive ignition switch recall report that dealers are having trouble finding enough free loaner cars.

GM says it hopes to begin repairs in early April, and is working to have a loaner available for any owner who requests one.

It is also offering Cobalt owners $500 toward the purchase of a new GM car.

As always, don't waste your money.
