Lansing (WILX) Another round of recalls announced by General Motors on Tuesday affects every vehicle built at the Lansing-Delta Assembly Plant since 2009.

Nearly 1.4 million Buick Enclaves, Chevrolet Traverses, GMC Acadias and the discontinued Saturn Outlook are being recalled because front safety lap belt cables can fatigue and separate over time.

In a crash, a separated cable could increase the risk of injury to front seat passengers.

GM has ordered the stop of all sales of the vehicles, new and used, that are currently on dealer lots until the repair can be made.

A spokesperson for Lansing-Delta Assembly says production will continue, but none of the vehicles produced can been shipped until the repair is made.

A GM Dealer told us he believes the automaker is being overly-critical of it's vehicles, after the government ordered it to pay a record $35 million dollar fine for failing to report faulty ignition switches.

This is part of a broader recall affecting a total of 2.4 million vehicles in the U.S. GM describes it as part of broad effort to quickly resolve safety issues.

Today's announcement includes 1,400 new Cadillac Escalade SUV's with faulty air bags and several dozen Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HDA full-size pickups from the 2015 model year because of a fire threat.

There haven't been any fatalities associated with these recalls.
