DETROIT — General Motors is issuing six more recalls totaling more than 312,000 vehicles as it cleans up safety issues.

The recalls in North America pushed GM's total for the year to 66, covering just over 29 million cars and trucks. That beats the company's old full-year record and has pushed this total number for the industry this year to more than 40 million, also an annual record.

The largest of Friday's recalls covers 215,243 Saturn Vue SUVs from the 2002 through 2004 model years. GM says keys can be removed when ignitions are not in the "off" position.
