DETROIT (AP) -- General Motors is recalling nearly 1.2 million SUVs for defective side air bags.

GM also announced smaller recalls Monday of commercial vans and Cadillac sedans amounting to about 364,000 vehicles for separate problems.

The new recall comes as GM is facing multiple investigations over its handling of a recall of more than 1.6 million small cars for defective ignition switches.

The company says it expects to spend approximately $300 million in the first quarter to repair the vehicles in the new recalls as well as the vehicles in the ignition recall.

The recall includes the Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia from the 2008-2013 model years; the Chevrolet Traverse from the 2009-2013 model years; and the Saturn Outlook from the 2008-2010 model years. GM says no injuries are related to the defect.
