Chevrolet Recalls 2013 Malibu Eco for Airbag Deployment Issue

Chevrolet has announced a recall on the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco model due to a potential problem with a sensor in the airbag assembly. The issue with the sensor poses the potential that the airbag might employee unexpectedly. In instances where the brakes are applied abruptly the vehicle sensing and diagnostic module could possibly reset itself.

If the resetting process was to take place before an abrupt turn, the vehicle sensors could possibly mistake the turn as a rollover and deploy the roof rail airbags. I've seen videos online of the Chevrolet Camaro at a drift event where the sensors mistakenly thought the car was rolling over and deployed airbags. The Malibu models covered in the recall were built between October 24, 2011 and March 31 of 2012. 4304 units are covered in recall and a campaign will start on June 1.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
