General Motors Co. on Tuesday said it will recall about 60,000 Saturn Auras from the 2007-08 model years because of a transmission shift cable that could wear out and break.

The problem can make the shift lever look like it is in one gear when it is in another. GM said the problem has caused at least 28 crashes and four injuries but no fatalities.

The recall affects cars sold mostly in the United States but also in Canada.

GM has recalled more than 6.1 million vehicles in the United States this year, almost half of all recalls made nationally this year.
