And tonight, new trouble for general motors. Another recall. 1.5 million cars. A problem with the air bags. After that news broke about the cars with the faulty ignition switches. Today, the woman at the helm of gm said it's time for the company to step up. And here's ABC's chief business correspondent, Rebecca Jarvis. Reporter: Tonight, general motors issuing three new recalls, totalling 1.5 million SUVs, luxury sedans and full-size vans for model years 2008 to 2014. For problems that include air bag and brake issues. It's part of an effort to assure consumers gm is acting quickly to fix problems. Something went wrong with our process in this instance. And terrible things happened. Reporter: In a video message new CEO Mary barra also addressed the fallout from the other recall last month of 1.6 million cars for defective ignition switches. Linked to 12 deaths, gm now facing multiple investigations into how it handles the recall. As a mom with a family of my own, this really hits home for me. Reporter: Barra is now conducting an intense review of gm's internal practices. As she told us on her first day as CEO, a lot has changed at the company. We streamlined the leadership team and said look, chief engineer, it's your vehicle. You're accountable. Reporter: Too many cooks in the kitchen? Too many cooks in the kitchen. We don't have that anymore. Reporter: Now, she's hoping it's a better recipe than what gm served up in the past. Rebecca Jarvis, ABC news, New York.
