DETROIT (AP) — General Motors is issuing five more recalls totaling 310,000 vehicles as the company cleans up past safety issues.

The recalls in North America pushed GM’s total for the year to 66, covering just over 29 million cars and trucks. That beats the company’s old full-year record and has pushed this total number for the industry this year to more than 40 million, also an annual record.

The largest of Friday’s recalls covers just over 215,000 Saturn Vue SUVs from the 2002 through 2004 model years. GM says keys can be removed when ignitions are not in the “off” position.

The problem is linked to two crashes and one injury.

GM is conducting a company-wide safety review following a bungled recall of 2.6 million small cars with faulty ignition switches.
