General Motors is recalling at least 7.6 million more vehicles dating back to 1997 to fix faulty ignition switches as the company's safety crisis continues to grow.
The latest recalls involve mainly older midsize cars and bring GM's total number of recalls this year to over 28 million.
The company says it is aware of three deaths, eight injuries and seven crashes involving the vehicles recalled on Monday. GM says it has no conclusive evidence that faulty switches caused the crashes.

According to GM, the cars are:
1997-2005 Chevrolet Malibu;
1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrique
1999-2004 Oldsmobile Alero
1999-2005 Pontiac Grand Am
