Beleaguered automaker General Motors GM -0.87% announced Monday afternoon that its string of recalls is not over yet: the company is recalling another 7 million vehicles, some of which date all the way back to 1997.
GM said Monday that it is issuing another six safety recalls that involve 7.6 million vehicles in the U.S. from the 1997 to 2014 model years; including GM vehicles worldwide, Monday’s recall accounts for 8.4 million vehicles.
