202,115 model year 2002-2004 Saturn VUEs because the ignition key can possibly be removed when the vehicle is not in the off position.

General Motors said on Friday it is recalling 269,000 vehicles to fix a variety of defects.

The largest of the five recalls involves 202,115 Saturn VUEs, from model years 2002 to 2004, because of an ignition key issue that it says is possibly tied to two know crashes and one injury.

The Detroit based car-maker said the ignition key could possibly be removed while the vehicle is in the on position and that affected consumers should return the vehicles to a GM dealer for inspection. It plans to replace ignition cylinders and key sets, if necessary, at no cost to customers.

GM also is recalling 48,059 Cadillac ATS sedans and Buick Encore crossovers from 2013 for seat-belt flaws, as well as 14,940 Chevrolet Impala sedans from 2014-2015 for a defective console latch.

The two remaining recalls involve a small number of Chevrolet Aveo and Pontiac G3 models for a brake fluid issue, as well as a small number of Chevrolet Spark models for a suspension problem.
