GM recalls 1.18 million SUVs for air bag problem
DETROIT -- General Motors is recalling nearly 1.2 million SUVs for defective side air bags.
GM also announced smaller recalls Monday of commercial vans and Cadillac sedans amounting to about 364,000 vehicles for separate problems.
The latest recall came as GM faced multiple investigations over its handling of a recall of more than 1.6 million small cars for defective ignition switches.
The company said it expected to spend approximately $300 million in the first quarter to repair the vehicles in the new recalls as well as the vehicles in the ignition recall.
The SUV recall included the Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia because their side air bags might not deploy.
