Recall Alert: 2013 Chevrolet Malibu

13Malibu

GM is recalling 4,304 Chevrolet Malibu sedans from the 2013 model year because after hard braking, the sensing and diagnostic module could reset itself, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If the module resets itself during aggressive turning and then a potential rollover is sensed, the side curtain airbags may deploy unintentionally. Additionally, the airbags and/or seat belt pretensioners might not deploy during a severe crash.

GM will notify affected owners June 1, and dealers will reprogram the sensing and diagnostic module for free. For more info, owners can call NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
