General Motors is recalling over a quarter million more vehicles, including Saturn VUEs for an ignition key issue possibly tied to two known crashes and one injury. The main recall affects 202,115 Vue's of the 2002 to 2004 model years. GM said the key could possibly be removed when in the 'on' position and urged affected consumers to take the vehicles to a GM dealer for inspection. The Detroit based car-maker has recalled nearly 15 million vehicles worldwide this year over potentially defective ignition switches. On Friday, GM said it is also recalling 48,059 Cadillac ATS sedans and Buick Encore crossovers from 2013 for seat-belt flaws, as well as 14,940 Chevrolet Impala sedans from 2014-2015 for a defective console latch. The two remaining recalls involve a small number of Chevrolet Aveo and Pontiac G3 models for a brake fluid issue, as well as a small number of Chevrolet Spark models for a suspension problem.
