DETROIT General Motors is recalling about 2.4 million vehicles, including the 2015 Cadillac Escalade and 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD, in four separate recalls, including the risk of fire and partial deployment of airbags.

There have been no fatalities associated with these recalls, GM said.

GM made the latest recall announcement on Tuesday.

The bulk of the recalled vehicles are from the 2009-'14 model years and include the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook.

The recalls are for:
? 1,339,355 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia crossovers from the 2009-'14 model years and Saturn Outlooks from 2009-'10 because front safety lap belt cables can fatigue and separate over time. GM has told dealers they cannot sell new or used models of the vehicles until the repairs are made.

? 1,075,102 2004-'08 Chevrolet Malibu sedans with the four-speed automatic transmission and 2005-'08 Pontiac G6 sedans because of a shift cable that could wear out over time, resulting in mismatches of the gear position indicated by the shift lever.

? 1,402 2015 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESVs because an insufficiently heated plastic weld that attaches the passenger side airbag to the instrument panel assembly could result in a partial deployment of the airbag in the event of a crash. GM has stopped sale of the 2015 Escalade. It is telling customers not to let occupants sit in the front passenger seat until the vehicle has been fixed.

? 58 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickup trucks because retention clips attaching the generator fuse block to the vehicle body can become loose and lead to a potential fire.

GM said it expects to take a charge of approximately $400 million in the second quarter, primarily for the cost of recall-related repairs announced in the quarter.

Edmunds says: This is another complicated GM recall as the company continues to grapple with the ongoing recall crisis. Look for individual stories coming up on each separate recall with further instructions for consumers.
