(Newser) – As it deals with reports of a possible 303 deaths linked to ignition-switch problems, General Motors is issuing another recall—this time of 1.2 million SUVs and several hundred thousand other vehicles. The company needs to fix wiring for a side airbag in the SUVs, CNNMoney reports. Customers may see a "Service Air Bag" warning light; if they take no action, the bag may not deploy at all. The automaker says it doesn't know of any injuries caused so far.

Affected models include the 2008-2013 Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia, 2009-2013 Chevrolet Traverse, and 2008-2010 Saturn Outlook. The company is also recalling 64,000 Cadillac XTS full-size sedans, model years 2013-2014, over a brake problem. Finally, it's recalling 303,000 Chevy Express and GMC Savana vans amid concerns about their instrument panels. To handle the costs involved in recent recalls, GM is taking a $300 million charge, Reuters notes. (Read more General Motors stories.)
