WASHINGTON - General Motors announced four new recalls Friday that includes nearly 600,000 cars worldwide.

The biggest was the Chevy Camaro for an ignition switch problem in the 2010 to 2014 models.

Drivers’ knees can bump the key and knock the switch out of the run position, shutting off the engine.

GM said this is not related to the massive switch recall earlier this year.

The three additional recalls include the Saab 9-3 convertible 2004 to 2011 models, the Chevrolet Sonic 2012 model year and the Buick Lacrosse 2014 model year.

These recalls are for various issues including seat belts and wiring in the driver's door.

General Motors CEO Mary Barra is heading back to Capitol Hill next week.

On Wednesday she will be joined by the former federal prosecutor who authored the probe into the company's recall crisis.

On the basis of the report, GM dismissed 15 employees and disciplined five others.
