Recall Alert: 2014 Chevrolet Malibu

2014ChevroletMalibu

Vehicles Affected: About 140,067 model-year 2014 Chevrolet Malibu sedans with 2.5-liter engines

The Problem: These vehicles are subject to the disabling of hydraulic brake boost that can require greater pedal efforts and extended stopping distances, increasing the risk of a crash. GM, which is recalling the vehicles voluntarily, said the problem was discovered during testing of a future model with similar technology. The automaker is aware of four crashes without injuries, but is uncertain if those are related to the hydraulic brake boost issue.

The Fix: GM will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the electronic brake control module for free.

What Owners Should Do: The automaker has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 for more info.

Lets see, in one of GM's most recent recalls: One model makes it hard to see, another makes it hard to stop, then one model has it making it hard to see that you are stopping? It's a good thing they've got everything covered. Dealerships must LOVE these recalls. Job security........ Bigtime!!
