The Chevrolet Sonic is among the latest General Motors' recalls.

General Motors has had a tough year. With its latest recall of Pontiac G8, Chevrolet Carprice and Cadillac models, GM has now recalled about 30 million cars in 2014.

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.

No injuries or fatalities have been reported from the latest recall. GM reported one crash.
