DETROIT (AP) - General Motors says it's recalling another 474,000 vehicles worldwide including new pickup trucks and SUVs for a transmission problem.
GM announced three recalls late Friday. The largest covers almost 467,000 four-wheel-drive Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups, as well as GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban SUVs.
It's the 48th recall for the company so far this year, covering more than 20 million vehicles.
The company says the transmissions can shift into neutral on their own. That can cause loss of power or it can let the trucks roll away if parked. GM says it knows of no crashes or injuries.
The other recalls are much smaller. One covers the Chevrolet SS and Caprice police cars for windshield wipers. The other covers Chevy Corvettes with defective rear shock absorbers.
