(CNN) - General Motors is recalling more than 700,000 cars and trucks.

The company made the announcement Wednesday.

The problems range from a broken screw that could cause front seats to move up and down freely, to problems with some welds, to problems with the power steering.

GM said it is aware of two crashes and three injuries, but no deaths associated with the problems.

GM has now recalled nearly 30 million vehicles since the start of the year, by far a record for any automaker and more than half the vehicles recalled by the industry as a whole.
