DETROIT, Mich. -

Generals Motors has issued a recall that impacts 2.7 million vehicles.

According to the Associated Press, about 2.4 million cars have a wiring problem. They include the 2004-2012 Chevrolet Malibu, 2004-2007 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx, 2005-2010 Pontiac G6 and 2007-2010 Saturn Auras.

GM said the issue is tied to 13 accidents and two injuries. The company issued a bulletin to dealerships in 2008 about the flaw, but never ordered a recall.

The issue is estimated to cost the company $200 million to fix.

So far this year, GM has recalled more than 11 million cars and trucks in the U.S. That is close to its annual recall record of 11.8 million set in 2004.
