Today's recall affects vehicles including the Buick Enclave, Chevy Traverse and GMC Acadia for a seatbelt problem; the Chevy Malibu and Pontiac G6 over a shift cable; the Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV over a problem affecting the airbags; and the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra HD over a problem that may cause a fire. A more detailed list is at the car maker's website.

GM has, of course, been in the news over its failure to recall more than 2 million vehicles with ignition switch problems linked to at least a dozen deaths.

Earlier this month, GM was fined $35 million civil penalty over its handling of the issue. GM also agreed to change how it reviews safety issues.
