General Motors is recalling 117,000 vehicles for a possible chassis issue, a defect that could suffer an electrical short that might cause engines to stall.

GM did not describe any symptoms of the issue, but said that it is aware of no crashes, injuries or fatalities connected to the problem.

The issue affects a small number — about 1 percent — of the 117,000 cars and trucks, GM said.

GM said it would park about 4,500 unsold vehicles until the repairs can be made.

This year, GM has recalled an unprecedented number of recalls. After disclosing a fatal ignition switch flaw that went unreported for a decade, GM scrutinized its older vehicles for possible issues and issued over 60 recalls.

Thursday’s recalled models are:

– 2013-2014 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban.

–2013-2014 Cadillac CTS.

–2013-2014 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.

–2013-2014 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV.
