Chevrolet Malibu Recalls
The fabric of the side curtain air bag may tear upon deployment, resulting in a lack of proper protection for vehicle occupants. This would increase risk of injury.
The ignition key may be able to be removed from the ignition switch without the vehicle's transmission being shifted to the park position, which could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly as occupants exit the vehicle. This would increase risk of injury.
The electronic stability control and anti-lock brake controls may fail to operate while driving, resulting in the possible loss of vehicle control.
The welded studs that mount the front and rear side impact air bags may fracture and separate if the air bags are deployed. This could result in the air bags moving out of position during deployment and cause increased risk of occupant injury.
The driver's frontal air bag may not inflate properly during deployment, resulting in possible increased risk of occupant injury.
The audio warning that sounds in the vehicle to alert the driver that the key is in the ignition when the doors are opened or seat belts are unfastened may fail to operate. This can result in the driver inadvertently forgetting the door is open, or forgetting to fasten the seat belt, resulting in a safety risk.
The air bag inflators for the front seat mounted side air bags may rupture, spreading metallic fragments to strike occupants. This could cause serious injury or death.
The cables that mount the front seat belts to the vehicle may bend and break, resulting in the seat belts not securing occupants.
The automatic transmission gear selector may not illuminate the gear that was selected. This could result in an undesired gear being selected.
The roof panel opening switch may stick out, and be accidentally tripped, causing the roof to close unexpectedly.
