DETROIT (AP) — General Motors announced two more recalls, pushing its total for the year to more than 70, affecting almost 30 million vehicles in North America.

The biggest of Friday's recalls covers just over 290,000 Cadillac SRX and Saab 9-4X SUVs in the U.S. The company says some rear suspension nuts may not have been tightened properly. That could cause the toe link adjuster to separate from the suspension, possibly causing a crash.

The recall affects SRXs from the 2011 through 2015 model years and Saabs from the 2011 and 2012 model years. GM says the problem has caused three crashes and two injuries.

The other recall covers over 89,000 Chevrolet Spark mini-cars from 2013 through 2015. Rust can cause a hood latch to stick, and the hood can open unexpectedly.
