    General Motors announced Monday that it's recalling nearly 1.2 million SUVs for defective side airbags.

    The automaker also issued less widespread recalls involving about 364,000 commercial vans and Cadillac sedans for separate problems.

    Here is a list of the recalled vehicles:

    • 2009-2014 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans, to get reworked instrument panel material to meet compliance for unbelted passengers
    • 2013 and some 2014 Cadillac XTS models, to be repaired to prevent possible brake booster corrosion that may result in overheating
    • Some 2008-2009 and all 2010-2013 Buick Enclaves and GMC Acadias, some 2009 and all 2010-2013 Chevrolet Traverse SUVs, and some 2008-2009 and all 2010 Saturn Outlooks, to repair the wiring harness of seat-mounted side airbags

    Monday's recall comes as GM faces multiple investigations over its handling of an ignition switch recall involving more than 1.6 million compact cars.
