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

GM’s recalls alone have the US auto industry on pace to break the record of 30.8 million recalled vehicles, which was set in 2004.

The company said on Thursday that it was 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 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 $200m charge this quarter for the added recalls.
