The biggest U.S. automaker, General Motors, has recalled another 2.4 million vehicles, this time for seat belt and transmission repairs on cars, sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks.

Tuesday's recall brings GM's worldwide recall total for the year to more than 15 million vehicles.

The latest recall covers 1.3 million late-model sport utility vehicles because of possible seat belt failures and more than a million cars with automatic transmission defects.

In all, GM has committed to making $1.7 billion in repairs.

U.S. safety regulators fined General Motors $35 million last week for its slow efforts to report problems with automobile ignition switches that are linked to 13 deaths. It was the largest fine possible under current law.

GM is the world's second biggest auto manufacturer, behind Japan's Toyota Motor Corporation.
