DETROIT (AP) - General Motors is adding 218,000 subcompact cars to its growing list of recalled vehicles.The new recall covers certain Chevrolet Aveo cars from the 2004 through 2008 model years.

GM says the daytime running light module in the dashboard center stack can overheat, melt and cause fires.

The recall posted Wednesday on a U.S. government website is GM's 30th this year. It brings the total number of vehicles recalled by the company since January to 13.8 million, breaking its own annual record.

Recall documents didn't say if the problem has caused any fires or injuries. GM says it will provide a plan to fix the problem as soon as possible.

The high number of recalls is fallout from a deadly ignition switch problem that is responsible for at least 13 deaths.
