GM Recalls Malibus for Service Error That Affect Air Bags

By Staff Writer July 21, 2018

General Motors LLC is recalling 66 2016-18 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles.


During servicing, a passenger presence system (PPS) may have been installed that was not correctly calibrated to the vehicle's seat type. As a result, the PPS may not properly identify an adult passenger from a child passenger in the front passenger seat, potentially causing the air bag to not deploy when it should, or causing the air bag to deploy when it shouldn't.


GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger PPS seat service kit, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.


GM's number for this recall is 18208.
