There have been 2 safety recalls issued from NHTSA.

AIR BAGS Recall Date: June 14, 2018
  • Summary: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2016-2018 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.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 66
  • Consequence: In the event of a crash, improper air bag deployment can increase the risk of injury.
  • Remedy: 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. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 18208.
  • Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
