GM Recalls Select 2013-MY Chevrolet Malibu Models

May 29, 2012

WASHINGTON – General Motors is recalling a total of 4,304 2013-MY Chevrolet Malibu vehicles manufactured between Oct. 24, 2011, and March 31, 2012, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

After a hard-braking event, for example during an aggressive turning maneuver, the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) may reset itself, which could lead to the roof rail airbag deploying, NHTSA stated.

GM said it expects the safety recall to begin on June 1, 2012 and that it will notify vehicle owners. GM dealers will reprogram the SDM to address the issue.
