One day after recalling 2.4 million vehicles, the company added another 218,000 Chevrolet Aveo subcompact cars for its 29th recall this year. That brings the total number of recalled GM vehicles in the U.S. to around 13.8 million, breaking its annual record of 10.75 million in 2004.
The new recall, posted Wednesday on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website, covers Aveos from the 2004 through 2008 model years.
