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.

Below are the makes and models affected by the recall:

  • 1997-2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
  • 2000-2004 Chevrolet Impala
  • 1998-1999 Chevrolet Lumina
  • 1998-2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
  • 1998-1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
  • 1997-2004 Buick Regal
