2011 Chevrolet Malibu Recalls
The flexible steel cables that connect the front driver and passenger seat belts to the vehicle may be bent, and could as a result can break. Dealers will replace the outboard lap anchor mounting bracket and inspect the flexible steel cable, replacing it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
Increased resistance in an electrical connection at the body control module (BCM) may result in voltage fluctuations in the brake pedal sensor circuit. These fluctuations can cause concerns with various systems that monitor the position of the brake pedal, any of which would increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will attach the wiring harness to the BCM with a spacer, apply dielectric lubricant to both the BCM and harness connector and the BAS and harness connector, and will reprogram the brake pedal sensor to correct these concerns.
2011 Chevrolet Malibu Reviews
We have a 2011 Malibu LTZ. The problem we are experiencing is the interior lights fluctuate all the time. One time you can see the dash lights really well: speed, RPM, radio, etc. But then all of a sudden, they will lighten so that you can hardly see them. We haven't touched the switch that regulates it at all. Any suggestions, the dealership says that's normal. Really?
