    Another day, another recall from General Motors.

    At least that's the way it seems as the automaker reviews safety issues across its line-up of cars and trucks in the wake of a mishandled recall of millions of older small cars.

    The number of recalls issued this year by the nation's top carmaker rose Tuesday to 29 as GM announced four separate actions affecting 2.4 million cars and trucks. While no fatalities were involved in the latest recalls, the problems were serious enough that GM has temporarily halted sales of the vehicles.

    GM has recalled 13.6 million vehicles in the U.S. since early February. That's more than the total number of cars it sold here in the last five years, and already surpasses GM's previous U.S. recall record of 10.75 million vehicles, set in 2004. By comparison, rival Ford has recalled 1.2 million vehicles in the U.S. this year, while Toyota has recalled 2.9 million, according to federal data and the companies.

    GM has recalled 56% more cars in 2014 than it sold in 2013. Amd Obama had the balls to bail out this crooked rats nest icon_confused.gif

    I'm not totally sure about the 500 million GM shares the Feds owned - I don't know if they pawned them all off on suckers yet

    Who knows, maybe they'll issue recalls for everyone else for something really serious?
