American automobile manufacturer General Motors announced six new recalls covering 717,950 vehicles on Wednesday, bringing the company’s total recalled units in 2014 to 30 million.

CNBC’s Phil LeBeau said in a tweet that none of the recalls were related to the company’s widely publicized ignition switch problem, and that the new recalls cover six models from 2011-2014.

Defective vehicles include the 2011-2012 Chevrolet Camaro, 2010-2012 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain, 2011-2012 Buick Regal and LaCrosse and 2010-2012 Cadillac SRX.

The recalls have reportedly been issued to address a loose bolt in the front powered seat-height adjustment mechanism, which has caused injuries, and a lower control arm bolt of the Korean-imported Chevrolet Spark, which was not fastened correctly. General Motors did not report any accidents resulting from the latter defect, but said it could cause mechanical problems leading to a potential loss in steering control. (RELATED: GM Issues Yet Another Recall)
