CHARLOTTE, NC (NBC) -- General Motors is issuing another recall, for a problem it's known about for at least a year.

The recall involves 60,000 Saturn Aura cars from 2007 and 2008. GM says the automatic transmission shift levers can show the wrong gear. For instance, the driver may think the car is in park when it's really in neutral, causing the car to roll away unexpectedly. The company says the problem has led to 28 crashes and four injuries in the past seven years. GM says it will reimburse owners for transmission cable repairs.

General Motors has recalled about 7,000,000 vehicles since February, including 2,600,000 for an ignition switch problem the company knew about for at least a decade.
