The latest recall includes about 60,000 vehicles. On certain Pontiac G8 and Chevrolet Caprice models, the vehicles “may experience unintended key rotation from the ‘Run’ to ‘ACC’ position if the driver’s knee interacts with the ignition key,” according to GM.

The recalled Cadillacs have fuel pump issues, repairable at dealers. The Caprice model is a police vehicle.
