DETROIT - General Motors added five recalls to its growing list Thursday, pushing its total number of recalled vehicles to more than 11 million this year.

GM s recalls alone have the U.S. auto industry on pace to break the record of 30.8 million recalled vehicles set in 2004.

The company said Thursday that it s recalling nearly 2.7 million more cars and trucks to fix problems with brake lights, headlamps and power brakes.

The recalls brought GM s total number for the year to 18. That includes 2.6 million small cars worldwide for a deadly ignition switch problem.

The company expects to take a $200 million charge this quarter for the added recalls.
