General Motors is recalling 3 million cars and trucks worldwide to fix five different safety problems that have triggered hundreds of complaints and some injuries, but no deaths.

Most of the vehicles -- 2.7 million -- are in the U.S., and include GM's redesigned pickups. Also included: 140,067 new Chevrolet Malibus for brake issues, reported here Wednesday.

GM says it will take a $200 million charge in this quarter for the cost of the recalls.

The recalls:

  • 2,440,591 previous-generation passenger cars for taillamp malfunctions.
  • 477 full-size trucks from the 2014 and 2015 model years for a tie-rod defect that can lead to a crash.
  • 103,158 previous generation Chevrolet Corvettes for loss of low-beam head lamps.
  • 19,225 Cadillac CTS 2013-2014 models for windshield wiper failures.
  • 140,067 Chevrolet Malibus from the 2014 model year for hydraulic brake booster malfunctions.
