2013 Chevrolet Malibu was recalled

In spite the fact that the Chevrolet Malibu received a 2012 Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS, it does not seem to be completely safe as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a recall concerning a number of Malibus, more exactly 4,304 units of the freshly built sedan, because of a potentially dangerous problem. Thus, the driver's side roof rail airbag is in danger of deploying unexpectedly in the situations when breaks are used heavily to stop and when the crash sensor believes that an accident took place due to a model getting reset. If the driver takes a strong turn during this reset, the sensors will be under the false impression that the Malibu was rolled and thus they will deploy the roof rail airbag. The recalled vehicles are to be taken to the dealer's lots in order to reprogramme the sensing and diagnostic module. NHTSA can be contacted at 1-888-327-4236.
