GM recalled 1.3 million vehicles today, including the 2009 Pontiac G6, for power steering issues.

The recall of GM products is becoming a regular occurrence and this action puts the automaker at more than 5 million vehicles recalled in March.

More than 400,000 Chevrolet Cruze sedans are covered by a new recall.

It’s been a busy year for automotive safety regulators – and dealer service shops – with a growing number of makers announcing recalls including a series of problems that could potentially lead to vehicle fires.

The latest on that list is General Motors.  The Maker says it is recalling 413,418 late-model Chevrolet Cruze sedans to modify the engine shield under the vehicle.  And a small number of vehicles involved in that service action could be covered by a separate recall covering 249 vehicles that may not have had their fuel tank straps properly welded into place.

“The most important thing for our customers to know is that we are proactively working to assure the Cruze is the safe and durable car they purchased,” said GM vice president of Global Quality Alicia Boler-Davis. “We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by these actions.”

The maker says it knows of no crashes, fatalities or injuries connected with either recall, though reports of two fires spurred the bigger recall.
