Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

It might be easier to count which vehicle's General Motor's hasn't recalled. On Monday, the auto giant announced another recall on millions of vehicles. On the same day general motor’s announced the compensation for the victims of it’s deadly ignition switches, GM also announced more recalls. This time 7.6 million additional vehicles sold in the U.S. and 8.4 million worldwide all linked to those faulty ignition switches.

This latest recall includes some cars, trucks, and SUV's dating back to 1997. GM announced that they are aware of at least 7 crashes, 8 injuries, and 3 fatalities that took place in the now recalled vehicles, but the company says there is no conclusive evidence that the defective condition caused those crashes.

CEO Mary Barra said their customers deserve more than they delivered and vows to make things right.

"I am working day and night to make sure that we correct this issue, that we learn from it and it never happens again," Barra said.

This year alone GM has recalled 29 million vehicles. That’s the most recalls by a single car maker in a year. GM says that there will be no cap for compensating the victims and their families.
