General Motors recalled 1.4 million cars Tuesday morning over an oil leak problem that poses a serious fire risk, marking the third recall of its kind since 2008, the Associated Press reported.

Previous incidents in 2007 and 2009 caused GM to recall 1.1 million vehicles. However, the repairs offered in these recalls were insufficient and led to 1, 345 vehicles catching fire, even though the cars had already been repaired by GM,  according to CNN Money.
