UPDATE 7/24 5:00am

There may be an explanation behind all the automotive recalls we've been seeing lately.

Both Crysler and General Motors have issued massive recalls this week involving more than a million vehicles.

Auto Industry Analyst Jeff Schuster says those recalls are likely being issued because of an abundance of caution.

"We're getting more recalls because I think they're essentially looking through every crevice and corner of GM's lineup and operation to make sure vehicles are safe on the road," says Schuster.

G-M has so far recalled 30-Million vehicles this year.

Many of them are because of an ignition switch problem that's been linked to at least 13 deaths.


More recalls coming from General Motors.

The company announcing six recalls covering more than 717-thousand vehicles in the U-S.

None of the new recalls involve ignition switch issues, but involve several other issues including loose bolts in front seats.

Affected models include some Camaro, Equinox, GMC Terrain, Buick Regal & LaCrosse, Cadillac SRX, Caprice, Silverado, Malibu, Impala models.

The new set of recalls brings GM's worldwide recall total this year to nearly 30 Million.
