General Motors has issued five recalls covering around 269,000 vehicles in the United States over separate issues like a faulty seat belt glitch or keys coming out when the ignition is not turned off. The latest string of recalls now brings the number of callbacks this year to 66, covering around 29 million vehicles globally.

The first of the five recalls covers 202,115 (MY2002-2004) Vues due to a key that can be removed when the ignition is not in the "off" position. GM said in a statement that it has knowledge of two crashes and one injury that could be related to the issue.

The carmaker said dealers will inspect the recalled vehicles and replace the ignition cylinder and key set if needed. The second recall covers 48,059 MY2013 Cadillac ATS sedans and MY2013 Buick Encore crossovers for over a possible issue with lap belt pretensioner cables that may fail to lock into place that could lead to "increased occupant movement in certain accidents."

No report of crashes or injuries was known. GM dealers are to replace both front outboard lap belt pretensioners. The third recall covers 14,940 MY2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala LT and LTZ sedans to fix a latch on the console storage bin that could pen during a rear crash.

According to GM, it hikes the risk of injury to occupants in rear crashes. It is not aware of any related crashes or injuries. GM has instructed dealers to halt delivery of the affected Impalas until the "inertia" latch on the console is replaced.

The fourth recall pertains to 1,968 MY2009-2010 Chevrolet Aveo and 2009 Pontiac G3 subcompacts due to a brake fluid issue "that could lead to longer brake pedal travel, and/or reduced braking performance.

The carmaker is issued a customer-satisfaction program in 2012 to fix the issue, but decided to upgrade it to a recall. It has no knowledge of related crashes or injuries.

The last of the five recalls covered 1,919 MY2014 Chevrolet Sparks for possibly loose left or right lower control arm attaching bolts. GM said it is not aware of any crashes or injuries to the issue.
