It's a long list that spans multiple companies:Chevy, GMC, Cadillac, Pontiac.

They have all seen issues with some models… some that date back ten years…

GM announced it will recall 172,000 Chevrolet Cruzes. This will only include the 2013- 2014 models with the 1.4-liter turbo engine.

"80 percent buy the traditional one not the turbo," said Ty Lewis, who is a Sales Manager in Rock Hill.

GM also recalled almost 500,000 late model pick up trucks and SUVs, saying leaks in a transmission oil cooling line. They say it could cause a fire. GM has already noted three that have taken place.

This recall brings the number to 4.8 million vehicles recalled.

An ignition flaw has been the main focus of the recall. The flaw causes the key to move, disabling the power steering and airbags. Thus far, it is responsible for 13 fatal crashes.

Chief Executive Mary Barra will be testifying before Congress about the recall next week.
