General Motors Recalls More Than 220,000 Cars
General Motors announced yet another recall this week.

The company said more than 220,000 cars are at risk of spontaneously catching fire. It's recalling Cadillac XTS models from 2013 to 2015 and Chevrolet Impala models from 2014 and 2015 because the brake pads can stay engaged even when they are not in use, which could cause a fire.

GM said it will notify owners and repair their cars for free.

There haven't been any reports of accidents or injuries caused by the issue to date. This recall is one of several for GM just this year in what has been called a "recall crisis" for the company.

In February, about 800,000 of GM's small cars were recalled due to faulty ignition switches, which could shut off the engine during driving. By the end of June, it issued a total of 45 recalls involving 28 million cars worldwide.
