The General Motors Co has reported that it will be recalling another 2.42 million vehicles in the United States, which raises the number of vehicles it has recalled so far this year to more than 15 million. The latest actions cover possible faulty seat belts, transmissions, air bags and fire issues according to a report by Reuters.

The General Motors Co. is under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice, Congress, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and several states for its handling of the faulty ignition switch, which engineers first discovered in 2001. According to the Huffington Post, GM has been criticized for a failure to detect the faulty part and also for not recalling the vehicles earlier.

Dave Sullivan, manager of product analysis for consulting firm AutoPacific Inc. said that according to the L.A. Times, “We never would have seen a lot of these issues addressed because they weren’t being brought to the right level of management’s attention,” Sullivan said. “I don’t think they’re done yet.”

These actions affect the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia full-size crossover vehicles; older-generation Chevy Malibu and Pontiac G6 mid-sized sedans; and newer versions of the Cadillac Escalade SUV and heavy-duty Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size pickup trucks. Huffington Post has reported that, GM has said that there have been no fatalities associated with the latest recalls.

GN expects to complete an internal probe of its handling of the issue within the next two weeks. It has been reported that The GM Company also recalled 58 heavy-duty versions of its 2015 full-size Chevy and GMC pickup trucks for potential fire issues.

In February, the automaker started recalling cars with the faulty ignition switches, which drivers can inadvertently turn off, disabling the airbags and steering. The L.A. Times has reported that, internal documents have shown that GM knew about the problem as early as 2001 but did not issue a recall until 13 years later.
