SAN FRANCISCO/DETROIT (Reuters) – General Motors Co (GM.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) recalled three million more cars for ignition switch issues on Monday, roughly doubling the number of GM vehicles with known switch problems in a crisis that has defined the automaker and new Chief Executive Mary Barra this year.
