2014 Chevrolet Malibu Recalls

Ignition Key May Be Removed Without Transmission Lever Shifted To Park

The ignition key may be able to be removed from the ignition switch without having the transmission shift lever securely in the park position. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the key cylinder lock housing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Roof Panel Switch Malfunction

A switch that automatically controls the operation of the roof panel is not correctly recessed and may be activated accidentally. Any objects or passengers in the open roof area under closure could be crushed or injured as a result. Dealers will replace the surrounding switch trim to recess the switch and correct the problem.

Loss of Power Brake Assist

Power assist to the braking system may be lost due to a problem with the vacuum assist, disabling the hydraulic boost assist. If this were to occur increased brake pedal effort would be required to slow and stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the software in the electronic brake control module to correct this concern. Affected vehicles are equipped with a 2.5L engine with the auto stop/start option.
