2002 Chevrolet Malibu RecallsIgnition Lock Cylinder Concern
Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.
Chevrolet is recalling certain 2002 Malibu vehicles because the left front headlamp may not perform to minimum required lighting standards. Lighting that is too weak will not provide enough visibility; lighting that is too bright causes glare for oncoming traffic. Dealers will inspect the left low beam headlamp and replace it if necessary.
